    From the creators of the Academy Award-winning SPIRITED AWAY comes a tale scripted by the legendary animator Hayao Miyazaki. Directed by his protégé Yoshifumi Kondô, this film is a simple tale about a young girl who falls in love and learns to believe in herself.

    Her name is Suzuku Tsukishima and she is nearing the end of her final year of junior high. An avid bookworm, she devours books while quietly dreaming about becoming a writer.

    One day, she meets Seiji, a lad who has the ability to both irritate and charm her, often at the same time. He also harbors an unusual ambition: to build violins in Cremona, Italy. Around the same time, she meets a kindly old man who owns an antique shop, who she later learns is Seiji's grandfather. One item in the store particularly catches her eye - a strange statue of a cat with glittering eyes. Inspired by Seiji's utter determination to realize his own dream, she writes a story about the feline-shaped sculpture coming to life.
