The year is 2020, three days before the opening of the Tokyo Olympics. While she should be studying for her exams, Kokone Morikawa is often dozing off, stuck between reality and a dream-world full of fantastic motorized contraptions. But after her father, a talented but mysterious mechanic, is arrested for stealing technology from a powerful corporation, its up to Kokone and her childhood friend Morio to save him. Together they realize that Kokones dream-world holds the answers to the mystery behind the stolen tech, and they embark on a journey that traverses dreams and reality, city and country, and past and present. Their mission uncovers a trail of clues to her fathers disappearance and ultimately a surprising revelation about Kokones family.

From visionary director Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone ComplexandEden of the East) comes a sci-fi fantasy that effortlessly weaves together the rapidly evolving technology of todays world with the fantastic imagination of the next generation. With an ambitious mix of multilayered action, whimsical characters and inventive machines, Napping Princess is a genre- and universe-blending film that shows that following your dreams is sometimes the best way to discover your past.
