Celebrate summer at the new JICC with the highly anticipated follow-up to director Mamoru Hosoda’s award-winning feature The Girl Who Leapt through Time.
Kenji is a socially-inept high school mathlete who spends most of his time immersed in Oz, an all-encompassing virtual reality where people and governments alike handle everything online–from shopping to traffic control and even nuclear launch codes. But when Natsuki, the most popular girl in school and Kenji’s secret crush, asks if he needs a job for the summer, Kenji jumps at the chance.
His mission: pretend to be Natsuki’s boyfriend for her grandmother’s 90th birthday bash. Things are going great until he solves a math riddle sent to his cell phone, unwittingly undermining Oz’s security to unleash a massive virus that threatens to destroy virtual and real world alike. As the nation grinds to a standstill, Kenji, Natsuki and her entire family must work together to clear his name and save the country from absolute chaos.
