Ruka is a young girl whose father works in an aquarium. When two boys, Umi and Sora, who were raised in the sea by dugongs, are brought to the aquarium, Ruka feels drawn to them and begins to realize that she has the same sort of supernatural connection to the ocean that they do, and slowly discovers that Umi and Sora's special power seems to be connected to strange events that have been occurring more and more frequently – such as the appearance of sea creatures far from their home territory and the disappearance of aquarium animals around the world. This gorgeous and sensitive anime movie takes a wild out-of-this-world turn, with a stunning and quasi-psychedelic ending that unimaginably answers all of Ruka’s questions.
