An all-new, classic fantasy starring Yukari Tamura and Konomi Suzuki as the two heroines.
Rin (Konomi Suzuki), an energetic girl who loves to eat, lives in a verdant frontier village.
Deep within the royal palace in the bustling capital city, the songstress Finis (Yukari Tamura) spends her days in solitude. Both share a special power no other person has. A miraculous power that can heal wounds, create water and stir the wind — the power of song. Guided by destiny, the two young women each face an arduous journey with the power of song. The shadow of war looms over the kingdom, tainting even the miraculous songs with the blood of innocents. Loved ones meet their deaths as silent screams echo through a stone prison. As two destinies intersect, will the final song be one of despair, hope or…? The series is comprised of 12 episodes, and is a LIDENFILMS x Dwango co-production. Lost Song will debut globally on Netflix in 2018.
