A vibrantly animated blend of Japanese folklore and storybook charm reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland, Production I.G’s (GHOST IN THE SHELL) award-winning feature-length romp will amaze both the young and the young at heart.
16-year-old Haruka is on a mission to find her mirror a precious childhood gift from her mother that mysteriously disappeared. While following a strange foxlike creature in the woods, she tumbles into a mystical world where once-cherished toys and treasures go when their owners neglect them.
