It’s 2020, the network is part of everyone’s daily life, however, a network glitch suspected to be a cyber-attack creates panic in central Tokyo. This time, ‘Digimon Adventure:’ follows the story of a fifth grader – Taichi Yagami, who on his way to rescue his mother and sister, suddenly finds himself in the Digital World. This unexplored virtual space where things are not what they seem is on the other side of the network and the realm with its creatures unknown to humankind. The adventures begin when Taichi and his six ‘chosen’ friends, helped by seven Digimons, or digital monsters, navigate the unpredictable and dangerous Digital World, trying to make their escape back home. ‘Digimon Adventure:’ is action-packed from start to finish, and the audience will trace the journey with their heroes – both human and Digimon – to a world both real and very imaginary.
