Here's an official synopsis of Sparrow:

The other side of the door was its whole time-

"Sparrow" is a story of adulthood for the 17-year-old protagonist, Sparrow, set in various disaster areas across the country, and must close the door that is causing devastation.

Sparrow's journey begins in a quiet town in Kyushu (located in southwest Japan) when she encounters a young man who tells her, "I'm looking for the door.""What the sparrow found was a single weathered door standing upright in the midst of the ruins, as if it had been sheltered from any catastrophe. The sparrow, who seemed to be drawn by the force, reached out to the knob...Doors start to open one after another throughout the country, unleashing destruction to those who are nearby. Sparrows must close these portals to prevent further disasters.

- the stars, and the sunset, and the morning sky.

Within that realm, it was as if all the time had melted together in the sky...

A landscape never seen before, a encounter, a farewell...Countless Challenges Her Journey Despite all the obstacles on her way, Sparrow's adventures illuminate a glimmer of hope in our own struggle against the harsh paths of anxiety and constraints that make up everyday life.Closing the doors that connect our past, present and future, this story leaves a lasting impression on all of our minds.

Drawn into these mysterious doors, the journey of the sparrow is about to begin.
