Produced by popular studio Madhouse, the film is the first original film by writer/director Atsuko Ishizuka, who previously directed the critically acclaimed series A Place Beyond the Universe. Goodbye Don Giles! It follows the story of three friends over the course of one summer, as their backyard adventures turn one small incident into a life-changing journey.

    Teens unfamiliar with Roma, Toto, and Drupe call themselves “Don Gillies,” an informal name for their backyard adventures. One day, when the trio is blamed for a nearby forest fire, they set off into the woods to prove their innocence. When disaster strikes their expedition, tensions erupt between the friends as they realize their upbringing has taken them on completely different paths in life. Director Atsuko Ishizuka continues her critically acclaimed series A Place Beyond the Universe with her first original feature film. With luminous animations and lush backgrounds, Farewell, Don Glees! It is a tender story of coming of age about the fear of being young and a bittersweet journey of self-discovery.
