A Silent Voice

Japanese teenager Shōya Ishida sets his affairs in order and walks to a bridge, intending to commit suicide. Coming to his senses at the last minute, he hears fireworks as he recalls his days in elementary school and the events that have led him to this point in his life.

In those days, Shōya was an indifferent child, one who viewed his fellow students as a way of staving off his boredom. The entry of a new student named Shōko Nishimiya into his class piques his interest when she informs the class that she is deaf. She tries her best to live normally and integrate with the class. However, when the other students and the teacher come to believe her presence is upsetting the social balance, Shōya and Naoka Ueno begin to bully her.
