GKIDS describes the film’s story as such:

“In modern-day Tokyo, three homeless people’s lives are changed forever when they discover a baby girl at a garbage dump on Christmas Eve. As the New Year fast approaches, these three forgotten members of society band together to solve the mystery of the abandoned child and the fate of her parents. Along the way, encounters with seemingly unrelated events and people force them to confront their own haunted pasts, as they learn to face their future, together.”

Tokyo Godfathers premiered in Japan in 2003, with Columbia Tristar distributing the film in US theaters that same year. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment released the film on DVD in 2004. It is directed by famed director Satoshi Kon, known for his other works like Perfect Blue (1997) and Paprika (2006). Tokyo Godfathers was loosely based on the novel Three Godfathers written by Peter B. Kyne. Kon also wrote the script for the film, along with Keiko Nobumoto. Nobumoto is most known as the head scriptwriter of Cowboy Bebop.

The film won the Excellence Prize at the 2003 Japan Media Arts Festival.
