Jiro dreams of flying and designing beautiful airplanes, inspired by the famous Italian aeronautical designer Caproni.

The film chronicles much of his life, depicting key historical events, including the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923, the Great Depression, the tuberculosis epidemic and Japan's plunge into war.

There might be people saying that it was the bad thing to do to create airplane to kill people. However, the beauty of his life through his Mitsubishi Zero is worth viewing. The young guy lived with his dream, creating the beautiful airplane to fly in the free blue sky. It describe that even though there are many beautiful moments to live as a human being, the wart itself turns them into all evil. I felt like Hayao Miyazaki wanted to tell us the point. And even though under worst situation like world war, people live their own life, and those lives themselves are just so beautiful. Once you watch this movie, you must feel something warm from deep of your heart.
