Synopsis

The story follows a young boy named Yuta, who lost his father in a car accident a year ago. One day, all alone, he goes to catch a beetle at a dam deep in the mountains he used to visit with his father. On his journey he meets a strange old man and it starts raining. Yuta slips, falls off a bridge and passes out. When he wakes up he finds himself in a village that should be under water but he has travelled back 30 years in the past. With children named Saeko and Kenjo he experiences summer activities like collecting fireworks, catching a rare beetle and discovering his first love.


This film is based on Masayuki Kawaguchi;s 2007 novel of the same name. It is being directed by Kônosuke Uda (One Piece) with a script adaptation from Kei Kunii who wrote the action-packed Princess Blade live action film. The project has character designs and animation direction by Hisashi Mori (Samurai 7) with Takaaki Yamashita (Summer Wars) contributing to visual art, and Seiki Tamura (K-ON!, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya) is serving as art director.
