This classic of 1980s anime cinema takes place in the distant future, when human kind's seemingly ideal society is ruled by a totalitarian government's iron fist. For 14 year old Jomy, it would be a crime not to speak out about the injustice of his world - but the authorities have an opposite take on the matter. Wanted for questioning the status quo, Jomy is forced to go on the run, but he has the help of the Mu, a race with extrasensory powers that's been suppressed by the state. They want to help him, but the government wants him dead, and as the seconds tick by, it begins to look like his life hinges solely on who gets to him first.
