Time of Eve director Yasuhiro Yoshiura creates an unexpected world in Patema Inverted, a perspective-twisting, sci-fi adventure about two people separated by opposite gravities.
Patema lives in an underground world and, although she is a princess, she is held back by the rules imposed by the elders of her clan. One day when she is exploring a forbidden zone she tumbles headlong into a void and out into the wide open world above the surface, a place with reversed physics where she could "fall up" into the sky and be lost forever.
Age is a student on this surface world and a part of a society whose compliant population has been brainwashed against the "sinners who fell into the sky." When he spies Patema hanging upside down from a tree, he pulls her down to safety, struggling to keep her earthbound as she grips on to him for dear life. Together they master the art of navigating competing gravitational f-rces and set out to discover the secret that keeps their worlds apart.
