I have to hand it to books - continuing to serve as terrific source material for film and TV properties. Bearing this in mind is the latest announcement from Funimation Films for the upcoming limited engagement of Harmony, the third of three of the late Project Itoh's works in the last few years.
Harmony arrives in select theaters May 17 + 18! Presented in Japanese with English Subtitles and English Dub. Check your local theater for specific days and times for your language preference.
Based on the Philip K. Dick award-winning novel by Project Itoh, Harmony explores the nature of humanity and the significance of free will in a peaceful futuristic utopia.
In a future ruled by an unwavering dedication to good health, three high school girls led by the defiant Miach Mihie attempt suicide as the ultimate act of rebellion. Tuan Kirie survives, but can’t shake the hatred she has for the “perfect world” she lives in.
Years later, a simultaneous mass suicide rocks the globe and sends society into a state of shock. A small group stands up to take credit for the event, claiming they’ve hijacked the consciousness of every person on the planet. Everything about the terrorists’ message sounds too familiar to Tuan. She suspects her old friend Miach might be involved, but how could that be when she’d supposedly killed herself years earlier? Desperate for answers, Tuan launches an investigation that takes her across the globe chasing the ghost of her old friend. But what is Miach’s end game? Will she finally wake the world from its monotonous slumber? Or, end it all for good?
