The wondrous new film from Director Ishida and Studio Colorido is “a heart-warming, hormonal mix of Twin Peaks and Studio Ghibli” (The Telegraph)!
Budding genius Aoyama is only in the 4th grade, but already lives his life like a scientist. When penguins start appearing in his sleepy suburb, hundreds of miles from the sea, Aoyama vows to solve the mystery. When he discovers that the arrival of the penguins is somehow related to a mysterious young woman from his dentist’s office, they team up for an unforgettable summer adventure!
