“A local urban legend claims that lighting fireworks at an abandoned airfield will call the “summer ghost,” a spirit that can answer any question. Three troubled teenagers – Tomoya, Aoi, and Ryo – do not know each other yet, but each has their own reasons to show up one day. When a sparkler is lit, a ghost named Ayane appears, and she reveals she is only visible to those “who are about to touch their death.” The three teens return home, but Tomoya soon begins visiting the airfield alone, as he becomes obsessed with the mystery surrounding Ayane and the true purpose of her visits.”
Summer Ghost is the directorial debut of illustrator Loundraw and is inspired by one of his drawings. It is animated by FLAT STUDIO. The film tells the story of Tomoya, a teenager who, after meeting the mysterious ghost Ayame, has to face the nature of their connection, the difficulties of growing up, and the importance of living your best life.
Summer Ghost releases in summer 2022. Stay tuned to GKIDS Films to get more information and to get your ticket when they are available.
