The love of Japanese high school students Mikako Nagamine and Noboru Tera is tested when Mikako is sent to fight aliens in a distant universe and voice mails to and from Earth become months to years in transmission.
This film was written, directed and produced entirely by Makoto Shinkai on his Power Mac G4. Makoto and his wife, Miko provided the voice acting for the working dub (A second Japanese dub was later created for the DVD release with professional voice actors).
The time between Mikako and I drifts further and further apart. That is why I have made a goal: to make my heart harder, colder and stronger. The door that I know will never open. I won't knock on it eternally. I will become an adult, even alone.
