Spring of Birth is the first of two planned films and is an adaptation of the Persona 3 PlayStation 2 game from Atlus. The story revolves around a hidden “Dark Hour,” or time that exists between one day and the next. All movement in the city of Iwatodai is stopped during this Dark Hour except for terrible creatures known as Shadows and the group of high school students that must fight them. The students are able to use weapons known as Evokers and can summon Personas to fight with them.
