Suzume - Limited Edition Blu-ray

On the other side of the door, was time in its entirety…

In this coming-of-age story, 17-year-old Suzume encounters a young man named Souta who says he’s looking for a door. When she finds a single weathered door standing upright amid ruins, seemingly drawn by its power, Suzume reaches for the knob to open it. Doors begin to open all across Japan, unleashing destruction upon anyone nearby. As this door opens, however, a mysterious white cat nicknamed “AristoCat” appears before them. He tells Suzume that he loves her but tells Souta he’s in the way, and with those words, he transforms Souta into a chair. AristoCat, Souta, and Suzume journey together throughout Japan to close doors and unearth a long-forgotten truth…
