Suzume is a coming-of-age story for the 17-year-old protagonist, Suzume, set in various disaster-stricken locations across Japan, where she must close the doors causing devastation.
Suzume’s journey begins in a quiet town in Kyushu (located in southwestern Japan) when she encounters a young man who tells her, “I’m looking for a door.” What Suzume finds is a single weathered door standing upright in the midst of ruins as though it was shielded from whatever catastrophe struck. Seemingly drawn by its power, Suzume reaches for the knob… Doors begin to open one after another all across Japan, unleashing destruction upon any who are near. Suzume must close these portals to prevent further disaster.
Suzume is Makoto Shinkai’s 13th directorial work, following Weathering with You’s release in 2019, where the movie won “Animation of the Year” at the 43rd Japan Academy Film Awards. Shinkai won “Director of the Year” for his 2016 movie, Your Name., at the 40th Japan Academy Film Awards, alongside its success as the third highest-grossing Japanese film worldwide. Shinkai’s earlier works also include The Garden of Words, Children Who Chase Lost Voices and 5 Centimeters per Second.
