CHILDREN WHO CHASE LOST VOICES FROM DEEP BELOW
2011 | Japan | Adventure, Drama, Family | 117'
Having lived a lonely life ever since her father's passing, Watase Asuna spends her days listening to a radio left to her by her father, which uses a crystal in place of a diode. This comes to an end when she meets a mysterious boy whom she connects with, but their acquaintance ends up tragically cut short. Getting swept along by unusual circumstances, Asuna takes to heart a hint that she might be able to see the boy again, and undertakes a journey where she is destined to learn about coping with loss and death.
