Budding genius Aoyama is only in the 4th grade, but already lives his life like a scientist. When penguins start appearing in his sleepy suburb hundreds of miles from the sea, Aoyama vows to solve the mystery. When he finds the source of the penguins is a woman from his dentist’s office, they team up for an unforgettable summer adventure. Based on Tomihiko Morimi’s popular novel and manga adaptation. Winner of The Satoshi Kon Award for Excellence in Animation award at Fantasia International Film Festival for the best animated feature. A visually amazing, heart-warming delight!
