Violet Evergarden: The Movie – The Plot

The story revolves around a young woman who is used as a “war tool” in the military. She matures and comes to understand the nature of love by working as an auto-memory doll. Also as a postal worker, who helps translate customers’ intentions into letters typed with pitch-perfect wording.

The movie begins by showing how others around her are now moving forward, while she stands still. Violet, however, holds hope that Gilbert has somehow survived as he dies a violent death during his service.

The movie is a culmination of a beloved heroine’s journey. And a proud display of how much she’s grown to become a person capable of giving love. Also, how much the trauma she still carries from the war and particularly the violent loss of Gilbert.
