The COVID-19 pandemic hasn’t been kind to Meguru Cinema, and when an order comes from the government for movie theaters to close their doors for a month, its manager, Kubo, considers shutting down for good. Just after they’ve flipped the closing sign for what might be the last time, a young movie director comes bursting in, begging Kubo to show his movie despite the pandemic. Kubo agrees to a single showing, placing his hope in an old superstition as his last chance to keep the theater running.
