Overview

Makoto Konno may not be the smartest girl in school, but she knows how to have fun. Her life changes when she has a brush with death and discovers a special power; the ability to jump backwards in time. Unable to resist exploiting this gift, she sets about changing her school grades and playing tricks on classmates. But it becomes clear that, when it comes to time, dangers lurk at every corner. With a host of awards under its belt and stunning art direction from Studio Ghibli's Nizo Yamamoto, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time is breathtaking.

The film is presented in its original Japanese language with English subtitles.
