Set in Kojima in the city of Kurashiki, Okayama Prefecture, ENSHEN is a story linking dreams and reality, revealing the hidden bonds between a girl and her father. Director Kamiyama stated that he was inspired to create an original fantasy he could watch with his own daughter.
“Recently, I have the same dream over and over.”
I’m sleepy all day, and dozes off at home and at school, too.
Kokone Morikawa, the female high school senior who may fall asleep at any time.
Three days before the summer of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games,
An incident occurred in her family.
Kokone does not know her family’s secret — the key to that mystery,
Every time she sleeps, it is oddly real and very warm,
It seems like a strange dream…
