An animated film from Production I.G, the studio behind the "Ghost in the Shell" franchise. Based on true events, it depicts bonds between children timidly growing in the aftermath of a tragedy caused by adults.
In 1945, the tiny island of Shikotan is occupied by the Soviet Union after Japan's surrender. As the lives of the islanders change dramatically, 10-year-old Junpei (voice: Yokoyama Kota) and his 7-year-old brother Kanta (voice: Taniai Junya) overcome linguistic and cultural barriers to become friends with the Soviet children.
