Akane is a spoilt teenage schoolgirl, somewhat indulged by her kind-hearted mother and excited for her impending birthday. She is sent to a trinket store to collect her present, where she meets the kooky shopkeeper Chai. Soon, alchemist Mr Hippocrates and his tiny apprentice Pipo emerge from the basement of the shop to lead the curious girls on an adventure to another world, in the hope that Akane will fulfil a prophecy and be its saviour. Acclaimed animator Keiichi Hara references Lewis Carroll, The Wizard Of Oz and traditional fairy tale favourites in creating this gorgeous family fantasy. MH
