Old-school animator Mamoru Hosoda, founder of Studio Chizu who still uses paper, pencil and paint to create his films, has made a glorious, charming and spellbinding animation about a young boy whose world is turned upside-down upon the birth of his new little sister, Mirai, whose name means future. Suddenly he is not the center of the family's universe. One day he storms out into the garden where he encounters strange guests from the past and the future, including his baby sister as a teenager. They go on a journey through time and space and uncover their family's incredible story.
