SeasonThe Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme 2023

This coming-of-age animation portrays college students enthralled by the blue skies, throwing themselves full-heartedly into the world of flying.

University freshman Tamaki Tsuru is looking for a fresh start; after a romantic disaster she plans to leave behind her enthusiasm for volleyball to find a new pursuit. While tennis seems like the perfect club pastime to throw herself into, a freak accident leads her into an entirely new direction: the fascinating and thrilling world of gliders. Despite her initial reluctance, Tamaki is about to see the world from an entirely different perspective.

The Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme 2023 is organised by the Japan Foundation, with Major Support from the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation, with Sponsorship in Kind from SUQQU, Athletia, and Clearspring and in Cultural Partnership with The Japan Society and JAL.
