“The Your Name director’s mythic and comic new animation is an absorbing, intriguing and bewildering work” - Guardian
From the acclaimed anime auteur behind Your Name and Weathering with You, Suzume is a coming-of-age story centring on 17-year-old protagonist Suzume, who must close the doors around Japan that are causing devastation.
Suzume’s journey begins in a quiet town in Kyushu (located in southwestern Japan) when she encounters a young man who tells her, “I’m looking for a door.” What Suzume finds is a single weathered door standing upright in the midst of ruins as though it was shielded from whatever catastrophe struck. Seemingly drawn by its power, Suzume reaches for the knob… and doors begin to open one after another all across Japan, unleashing destruction upon any who are near. Suzume must close these portals to prevent further disaster.
