A boy named Roma lives in a rural town a short distance from Tokyo. He seems like he can’t fit in with his surroundings. He and Toto, who is also an outsider, form their own team called “Don Glees”. The relationship is supposed to remain the same even after Toto leaves for high school in Tokyo and they break up.

“Hey, don’t you want to look down on the world?” The summer break of the first year of high school. It started with a casual comment from Drop, a new member of “DonGlees.” Following Drop’s words, Roma and the other two indicted for the forest fire are forced to search for the drone that disappeared into the sky in search of evidence of its innocence. The little adventure of summer soon turns into a great adventure that will drastically change the way of life of the boys.


The film will be Ishizuka’s first original anime film. Ishizuka commented that the film will be set in Iceland, saying that “after reaching Antarctica” in his previous anime A Place Further Than the Universe, he opened a map and looked for the opposite end of Antarctica. “Far west of Eurasia lies an isolated island that marks the confines of the Atlantic”. He added that the story will focus on a 15-year-old boy on the brink of adulthood as summer vacation begins. The teaser image for the film appears to show Guðjón Ketilsson’s sculpture of a telephone booth, commemorating the centenary of the opening of the first international telegraph cable in Iceland.
