Chibi Maruko-chan is back on the big screen along with some new friends.
Six foreign students come to visit the town of Shimizu for a homestay program. The kids can barely contain their curiosity and even the grown-ups are excited! Maruko’s family hosts a boy from Italy… who happens to get a crush on her!
With students from countries as far as Brazil and India, the kids are in for a memorable summer of new friendships. They get to know each other’s culture and even venture out to Osaka and Kyoto to create new memories together.
