Sometimes there are just so many releases and titles, and some intriguing below the radar ones, that things get missed. One is the release back in the summer of 2014 with Nemure Omoi Ko, Sora no Shitone ni, aka Sleep Tight My Baby, Cradled In The Sky. The 50-minute feature film had its DVD release that came with English subtitles and there’s even an English-subtitled trailer that I don’t recall seeing anything about previously. The disc is priced at 3,240 yen and comes with the minute long pilot video and a four-minute slideshow of materials. It’s a region-free DVD with PCM stereo Japanese dialogue.
Plot concept: A family was riding a car on their way home from a maternity hospital. Satomi and Yasunori were taking their newborn baby named “Orine” home and were filled with happy expectation. However, a sudden accident attacked them. Orine lost her parents, and she became alone.
Nineteen years have passed, and she has grown up. She was pursued by the police because of an incident. She continued to escape, but Yuri Aoshima, a member of a shady organization, tried to contact her. Orine agreed to Yuri’s demand, which was going to an experimental space station. Yuri will help her to escape, instead.
Somehow, only Orine can enter an unmanned space station. Surprisingly, the person who was waiting for Orine was her mother, Satomi. She appeared in the similitude of her twenties. Orine was perplexed, and Yuri demanded to turn the power off of the station. Unwillingly, she started to place the shut-down device, but she believed that it will solve the mystery and help her mother.
As Orine and Satomi spend time together, they made up for their lost time. Yuri’s aim, Satomi’s true identity, and a man called “SENSEI” who is involved in taking over the station.
While the mystery deepens, Orine gets closer to the “truth”…
