One sunny day, four young strangers—Hikari, Ikuko, Ishi, and Takemura—meet by chance at a crematorium. They have all recently lost their parents, but none of them can shed a tear. They are like zombies, devoid of all emotion. Alone in the world at 13 years old with no future, no dreams, and no way to move forward, our protagonists dress themselves in scraps from a garbage dump, track down musical instruments, and decide to form a kick-ass band. They call themselves LITTLE ZOMBIES. This is a story about their quest to retrieve their ability to feel.

Writer/Director/Composer Makoto Nagahisa’s feature-length directorial debut is bursting with hyper pop style and unbridled imagination. Mixing inspiration from film, television, music, and, most importantly, video games, Nagahisa dazzles with a myriad of cinematic tricks, and he pushes his script in zany directions while never losing sight of its sympathetic exploration of grief and loss.

“A hyperstylized, hyperactive and hyper-fun movie spectacular.”

“Blissful, whacked-out, inspired, juvenile, dementedly inventive and hyper-energized.”
— HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

“Sends you out bopping along to the Little Zombies’ adorable four-on-the-floor dance- rock theme song, but also feeling as if you’ve been on a tough, honest-to-goodness journey of personal growth.”
