Mitsuha is a teenage girl living in rural Japan who dreams of the big city. Taki, a boy of the same age, resides in Tokyo, until one day they wake up in each other’s bodies. Initially confused and convinced of being caught in a dream, they gradually learn to communicate with each other via their phones and – despite having never met – develop a system which allows them to cope and work together. However, one day the phenomenon abruptly stops, leaving Taki mystified. Gradually, Taki learns an astonishing truth, resolving to do everything within his power to meet the girl who has become such a formative part of his life.
