Based on the Japanese award-winning manga by Fumiyo Kouno, In This Corner of the World is an empowering coming-of-age tale set against the backdrop of WWII and captures the resilience and triumph of the human spirit.
The film follows a young lady named Suzu Urano, who in 1944 moves to the small town of Kure in Hiroshima to live with her husband’s family. Suzu’s life is thrown into chaos when her town is bombed during World War II.
Shout! Factory and Funimation® Films partner for the American launch of In This Corner of the World on Friday, August 11, 2017.
