About the film:
Mitsucha and Taki have never met. She lives in the countryside and longs for life in the big city. He on the other hand lives in Tokyo and dreams of a simple life in the countryside. Everything changes when they suddenly switch places. Her soul moves to his body and vice versa. Is the bond between them strong enough to bring them together?
YOUR NAME is the biggest animation success in Japan since the release of SPIRITED AWAY in 2001. This is an explosive movie about time, destiny, and the dreams of two young people.
