Weathering With You is the highly-anticipated new film from director Makoto Shinkai, who previously brought us the critically-acclaimed Your Name (the highest grossing anime in box office history).
When Hodaka runs away to Tokyo, he quickly finds himself pushed to his financial and personal limits. Living in isolation and loneliness, he finds a city in constant gloom and rain, as if to suggest his future. One day, by chance, Hodaka meets Hina, a bright and strong-willed girl who seems to possess an impossible gift: the power to stop the rain and clear the sky.
This highly-anticipated film is Japan's official submission for the Academy Award for Best International Film.
