“The story might be fantastic, but with its humour and relatable characters – confused kids chasing dreams, when what they actually want is right there all along – the film is satisfyingly rooted in the real world” – Screen International
One summer morning before school, Kaoru hears an unsettling rumour: there’s a mysterious tunnel that can grant any wish to those who enter it, but ages them dramatically in exchange. At first, he writes it off as nothing more than an urban legend, but that very night he happens upon the passage: the Urashima Tunnel. As he stands before its gaping maw, a thought occurs to him: if this tunnel truly does have the power to grant any wish, could he use it to bring his younger sister back from her untimely death five years earlier? But when he returns to explore the tunnel the next day, he finds he’s been followed by the new girl in class, the enigmatic Anzu. She takes an interest in Kaoru, and they agree to work together to investigate the time-twisting tunnel and uncover its mysteries. Together they might achieve their deepest desires, but are they prepared for what it may cost them?
