Ring Wandering

1h 44m Drama, Fantasy 2021

In central Tokyo, a young man named Sosuke aspires to be a manga artist. His current work is about a battle between a hunter and a Japanese wolf. He can’t draw the extinct wolf well, nor develop the story. One winter’s day, Sosuke finds an animal’s skull while digging foundations at a construction site. He is a day labourer to make a living. Is it a Japanese wolf’s skull? Sosuke takes it home without permission. His interest peaks and he sneaks into the construction site at night to find other pieces of bones, which may help him draw the Japanese wolf. Unusual in winter, there is a fireworks display that night. Without finding any bones, Sosuke leaves the construction site. Disappointed, he bumps into a mysterious woman Midori and unintentionally hurts her. Midori is looking for her dog; missing for a week. Feeling sorry about her injury, Sosuke helps to look for the dog. Wandering around a quiet town, wondering why the fireworks do not start, he travels through time into Tokyo’s past and what lies underground.
