But when her father, a talented but mysterious mechanic, is kidnapped for stealing technology from a powerful corporation, it’s up to Kokone and her childhood friend Morio to save him.

This Reviewer?s Take:
Tweens, teens, and even adult audiences will enjoy the sci-fi/fantasy of Napping Princess in her journeys between the real world and Heartland. Its complicated main plot entertains dreams and reality. Watch carefully the pivotal dream sequence about Ancient and why she dreams. Stunning visuals well fit Napping Princess’s fighting fear conclusion.
