Description

Details

Japanese filmmaker Satoshi Kon directs this bittersweet comedy anime about three homeless friends, a young girl, Miyuki (Aya Okamoto), aging transvestite Hana (Yoshiaki Umegaki) and middle-aged down-and-out Gin (Toru Emori), who have formed a makeshift family bond that sees them through life in the dirty backstreets of Tokyo. On Christmas Eve, while foraging through a rubbish dump for food, they come across an abandoned newborn baby. Hana, who has always dreamed of being a mother, persuades the others to let her keep the baby overnight.

The next day, using their only clue, a key they discovered with the baby, the trio set out on an event-filled journey to find the baby's parents, coping with their own emotional reactions along the way.
