Shoya Ishida starts bullying the new girl in class, Shoko Nishimiya, because she is deaf. But as the teasing continues, the rest of the class starts to turn on Shoya for his lack of compassion. When the two students leave elementary school, Shoko and Shoya do not expect to communicate to each other again. Many years later, an older, wiser Shoya - tormented by his past behaviour - decides he must see Shoko once more. He wants to atone for his sins, but it may be too late.
Based on the bestselling manga by Yoshitoki Oima, Yamada Naoko directs a moving tale that explores the difficulties of being an outsider and living with actions and decisions made during childhood.
