The movie follows Nishimiya Shouko, an elementary school student who is deaf. She transfers into a new school, where she is bullied by her classmates. Ishida Shouya, one of the bullies, goes to the point that she transfers to another school. As a result, he is ostracized and bullied himself, with no friends to speak of and no plans for the future. Years later, he sets himself on a path to redemption; to right the wrong he has inflicted onto both of their lives.
Watching this movie will bring out a roller coaster of emotions. The plot of the film is beautiful, and deals with a lot of themes. I highly recommend you give this movie a try even if you prefer other genres. The movie is as good as Your Name, if not better. It won best animation of the year in the 26th Japan Movie Critics Awards. Out of five stars, I would give this movie 4.5!
