The summer of his high school freshman year, Hokoda runs away from his remote island home to Tokyo, and quickly finds himself pushed to his financial and personal limits. The weather is unusually gloomy and rainy every day, as if to suggest his future. He lives his days in isolation, but finally finds work as a writer for a mysterious occult magazine. Then one day, Hokoda meets Hina on a busy street corner. This bright and strongwilled girl possesses a strange and wonderful ability: the power to stop the rain and clear the sky…
The film will be released here in Southeast Asia. It will premiere in Singapore and Indonesia on 21 August 2019. They have also confirmed that it will also be shown in the Philippines, but there’s still no exact release date yet.
