Juri Yukawa lives with her NEET father and brother, her retired grandfather, her sister (a single mother) and her young nephew. One day, her nephew and brother are kidnapped for ransom. Having only 30 minutes to meet the demands of the kidnappers, Juri, who realizes there is not enough time to prepare the money, decides to head for their rescue by herself with a knife in hand when her grandfather uses a mysterious stone passed on in the Yukawa family to stop time.

In a world where everyone and everything is inert, Juri and her father and grandfather run to rescue the two. But at the kidnappers' hideout, they soon realize they are not the only ones who can move about in this still world… (Source: MU)

New Work by Takahiro Omori
Director Takahiro Omori (Durarara!!) has been planning this work for ten years. The story is about having a pure heart and trying to be considerate of each other when living in a world with no freedom.

Geno Studio was established when the studio took over Gyakusatsu Kikan, when Manglobe went bankrupt in the middle of production. Therefore, Gyakusatsu Kikan is considered the 0th work of the studio. The Blu-ray and DVD for the movie will be released on October 25.
