    • Synopsis
    • Jiro dreams of flying and designing beautiful airplanes. Nearsighted from a young age and thus unable to become a pilot, Jiro joins the aircraft division of a major Japanese engineering company in 1927. His genius is soon recognized, and become one of the world’s most accomplished airplane designers.
      THE WIND RISES chronicles his life and the key historical events that affected it - The Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923, The Great Depression, the tuberculosis epidemic, and Japan’s plunge into war. Jiro meets and falls in love with Nahoko, develops and cherishes his friendship with his colleague Honjo, and innovates tremendously, leading the aviation world into the future.
      Hayao Miyazaki brings his unique vision to this epic tale of love, perseverance, and the challenge of making choices in a turbulent world.
