A young boy, shipwrecked on a remote island, discovers he’s not alone when he encounters an old Japanese soldier who retreated there after World War II. As dangerous invaders appear on the horizon, it becomes clear they must join forces to save their fragile island paradise.

This gripping hand-drawn animated tale with its message of working together to protect nature, has never felt more relevant.
