Cruelly mistreated by fortune, two young girls – seventeen-year-old Yui (voiced by ASHIDA Mana) and eight-year-old Hiyori (voiced by AWANO Sari) – have both become separated from their families.

Lost, with no place to go and trying to find somewhere to call home, they come across a strange old lady, Kiwa (voiced by OTAKE Shinobu), who offers them her hospitality at her shabby but well-kept home – a mayoiga (old Japanese folkloric concept).

The house’s close proximity to the sea, and the opportunity to start afresh that it brings, slowly breathe new life into the girls. Then, one day, mysterious beings referred to by Kiwa as ‘fushigitto’ begin showing up…

Ten years after the Great East Japan Earthquake in Tohoku, as a result of which many people lost their lives and homes, KAWATSURA Shinya directs this brand-new animation feature adapted from KASHIWABA Sachiko’s novel, paying tribute to the area and its people.

This is a heart-warming story of new beginnings and childhood wonder.
