On the other side of the door, the whole time was –
17-year-old Suzumi’s journey begins in a quiet town in Kyushu when she encounters a young man who tells her, “I’m looking for a door.” What Suzumi found was a single frozen door that stood upright amid the rubble as if it had been protected from any catastrophe. Seemingly intrigued by her power, Suzumi grabbed the handle…
All over Japan, doors begin to open one by one, unleashing destruction upon anyone nearby. Suzumi must close these gates to prevent further disasters.
Within this world, it was as if all of the time had melted together in the sky—
Pulled by this mysterious door, Suzumi’s journey is about to begin.
Shinkai explained that three important points about the film are that it is a road movie about Japan, a story about “doors closing rather than opening”, and a reason to visit the cinema. He explained that closing doors could refer to tying loose ends or terminating something.
