Welcome to the world of machines. Not so far from our present day, a young woman, Kokone, is having trouble staying awake while studying for her college entrance exams. As she naps, her strange dreams reveal a land of magic-wielding princesses and machines at war, and she is surprised by occasional hints that her family may be involved. But her father, a brilliant mechanic who spends his time repairing and modifying cars, is too busy to notice her, much less address her questions about any truth behind the family connections. As the dreams continue to grow in intensity, Kokone realises that there may be stronger connections between her dreams and reality, leading her closer to her family history than ever before... Like all the best anime, the film revels in multilayered fantasy to show how sometimes opposites—waking and dreaming, the past and the future—are far more intertwined than they appear.
