From the singular mind of the late Satoshi Kon comes an alternative festive tale you’ll never forget. And this year it's celebrating its 20th anniversary.
The film follows a group of three homeless people who find an abandoned baby on Christmas Eve. Together they set off on a quest across the snowy streets of Tokyo in an attempt to reunite it with its mother. Along the way they meet with a series of colourful characters and experience unexpected acts of kindness.
Kon's film offers a reflection on the experiences homeless individuals face with sensitivity – particularly during these colder months. It also reflects on the importance of the families we are given and create.
