Most of the things that happen at sea are left unknown...
When Ruka was younger, she saw a ghost in the water at the aquarium where her dad works. Now she feels drawn toward the aquarium and the two mysterious boys she meets there, Umi and Sora. They were raised by dugongs and hear the same strange calls from the sea as she does.
Ruka’s dad and the other adults who work at the aquarium are only distantly aware of what the children are experiencing as they get caught up in the mystery of the worldwide disappearance of the oceans’ fish.
With beautifully detailed hand-drawn animation and a musical score by award-winning composer and longtime Studio Ghibli collaborator, Joe Hisaishi (Spirited Away), you won’t want to miss this absolutely stunning feature film!
Following sold-out screenings at film festivals across both countries, Children of the Sea will dive into cinemas in Australia – and New Zealand as a part of the Reel Anime festival – on December 12.
