Synopsis: In modern-day Tokyo, three homeless people’s lives are changed forever when they discover a baby girl at a garbage dump on Christmas Eve. As the New Year fast approaches, these three forgotten members of society band together to solve the mystery of the abandoned child and the fate of her parents. Along the way, encounters with seemingly unrelated events and people force them to confront their own haunted pasts, as they learn to face their future, together.
The new English-language dub produced by GKIDS and NYAV Post features the voices of Jon Avner (Just Cause 3) as Gin, Victoria Grace (Mirai) as Miyuki and Shakina Nayfack (Transparent, Difficult People) as Hana, with Kate Bornstein, Crispin Freeman, David Manis, Jamieson Price and Kirk Thornton.
Produced by the prolific Masao Maruyama (In This Corner of the World, Summer Wars, Perfect Blue) with a screenplay by Kon (Paprika, Millennium Actress) and Keiko Nobuoto (Cowboy Bebop series & movie), Tokyo Godfathers features a whimsical score by Keiichi Suzuki and hails from celebrated studio Madhouse.
