The Movie That Melted the Hearts of Millions!
Jintan, Menma, Anaru, Yukiatsu, Tsuruko, and Poppo - six grade-school students who were the best of friends. As the "Super Peace Busters," they always played together at their "secret base" until Menma died in a tragic accident.
Five years later, Menma appeared before Jintan, now a high school freshman. No one could see her but Jintan, and Menma told him that she wanted the Super Peace Busters to grant her a certain wish. But not even Menma herself remembered what that wish was.
Having been traumatized by Menma's death, the five had drifted apart, but after giving vent to their bottled-up feelings in an emotionally-charged moment, they gradually went back to being the "gang" of years past. And then Menma said goodbye, leaving letters to everyone of the Super Peace Busters.
One year later - once again, they gather at their secret base, each of them with a letter to Menma in hand.
She suddenly appeared before us one day… 6 of us…friends…we were always together. During those days, I believed that I can do anything. I believed that I wasn’t afraid of anything. But, then it happened. I just said it without really thinking about it. I didn’t mean to hurt her. I’ll just tell her sorry tomorrow, that’s what I thought.
But… That “tomorrow” never came.
So, time passed by and then one summer day, a miracle happened. Because of an accident during their childhood, 6 friends’ hearts were closed shut, and they grew apart from one another. One summer day, their friend who passed away in the accident appears before them. But, she cannot remember the reason why she came back. The friends meet once more to figure out just what her “reason” was. Time that stood still begins to slowly move once more… Why did she come back?
It was one summer miracle she wished for…
You can meet her if you’re facing forward.
