You don’t know about it yet, but separate from our world, there is a secret world of beasts. A lonely boy living on the streets of Tokyo stumbles into a fantastic other world. There he forms an unlikely relationship with a wild warrior beast who is searching for the perfect apprentice. Worlds collide and from hostility to acceptance, a precious bond is forged. But when a deep darkness threatens to throw the human and beast worlds into chaos, they face the ultimate test—a final showdown that will only be won with all their combined strength and courage. A bold and beautiful new film about friendship from the director of the wonderful Wolf Children and Summer Wars
