Nomination Detail

Based on the popular best-selling manga series written and illustrated by Yoshitoki Ōima, Naoko Yamada’s A Silent Voice begins at a Japanese elementary school where Shoya Ishida is mercilessly bullying the new girl in class, Shoko Nishimiya, because she is deaf. But as his teasing escalates, the rest of the class starts to turn on Shoya for his lack of compassion. When they leave elementary school, Shoko and Shoya do not speak to each other again. That is until an older, wiser Shoya, tormented by his past behaviour, decides he must see Shoko once more. Is it too late to atone for his sins, or can Shoya redeem himself and become a better man?
