Tickets for “Ride Your Wave” are available at www.RideYourWaveMovie.com and participating theater box offices.

Hinako is a surf-loving college student who has just moved to a small seaside town. When a sudden fire breaks out at her apartment building, she is rescued by Minato, a handsome firefighter, and the two soon fall in love. Just as they become inseparable, Minato loses his life in an accident at sea. Hinako is so distraught that she can no longer even look at the ocean, but one day she sings a song that reminds her of their time together, and Minato appears in the water. From then on, she can summon him in any watery surface as she sings their song, but can the two really remain together forever? And what is the real reason for Minato’s sudden reappearance?

“We are thrilled to bring fans this joyous and touching feature from Masaaki Yuasa,” said GKIDS President David Jesteadt, “In this heartfelt tale of romance, loss, and self-discovery, Yuasa continues to expand on his distinctive artistic vision.”

“We are proud to once again join with GKIDS to bring a high-anticipated Masaaki Yuasa film to American audiences,” said Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt. “Anime fans have enjoyed the GKIDS/Fathom partnership with such celebrated events as the annual ‘Studio Ghibli Fest’ series, ‘Promare,’ ‘Werathering With You,’ and more.”
