There is a future that we can’t wait for.
Makoto is a cute, Japanese high school kid whose bike brakes fail, putting her in the path of an oncoming train and certain death. She opens her eyes to find herself minutes before the crash which she now can avoid. Using the new found gift of travelling backwards in time, Makoto, can retake tests and change events when things don’t go her way the first time. She also learns that we are all interconnected and that her actions bring complications and dangers to those closest to us.
Winner of the 2007 Japanese Oscar for Best Anime.
Film presented by the Consulate-General of Japan, The University of Waikato, The Japan Cultural Centre, Sydney (The Japan Foundation).
