A recently-made hidden gem, this off-kilter coming-of-age story is based on the best-selling novel by Tomohiko Morimi, author of Night is Short, Walk on Girl and The Tatami Galaxy, and is the feature film debut by a rising star of the anime world, Hiroyasu Ishida.

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 discovers a link between the source of the penguins and a woman from his dentist's office, they team up for an unforgettable summer adventure!
