High school freshman Hodaka Morishima leaves his home on an isolated island and moves to Tokyo, but he quickly finds himself in financial trouble. Living his days in isolation, he eventually lands a job as a writer for a shady occult magazine.

clear the sky.
About Makoto Shinkai:
The visionary director behind the body-swapping romance “Your Name”, which earned him international acclaim, Shinkai has been
celebrated for stories exploring young love and distance, like “5 centimeters per second” and “The Garden of Words”.
A graduate of Tokyo’s Chuo University, Shinkai made his debut 20 years ago with the award-winning short film “She & Her Cat”, before quitting his full time job to produce, write and direct “Voices of a
Distant Star”. Since then, he has helmed feature films including the
Sci-Fi infused “The Place Promised in our Early Days”, the fantasy epic
“Children Who Chase Lost Voices”, (released in the UK as “Journey to
Agartha”), and his first break-out mainstream success, “Your Name”.
