Quick Overview - Hoshi no Koe (Voices of a Distant Star)

In 2046, Mikako, a highschool girl and mecha pilot, travels through the solar system and beyond to fight a mysterious alien force. The battles, however, are not her (nor the film's) main concern. As the light-speed jumps take her further and further from home, her messages to Noburo, her Earth-bound boyfriend, take longer and longer to reach their destination. As it becomes months and years between messages, will their love survive?

An outstanding amateur production, conceived and created by a single dedicated artist.
