According Suzume no Tojimari official site, the film is described as follows:

“Suzume, a 17-year-old girl who lives in a quiet town in Kyushu, meets a traveling young man who says to her, ‘I’m looking for a door.’ She follows him and discovers a weathered door in the ruins of the mountains as if it was the only thing left from a cave in. As if drawn to something, Suzume reaches for the door.

The synopsis continues:

“Soon the doors begin to open one after another in various parts of Japan. As disasters come from the other side of the doors, the open doors must be closed. The stars, the setting sun and the sky morning – at this place she wandered, there was a sky that seemed to blend together all the time. Guided by the mysterious doors, Suzume’s “door lock journey” begins.

Suzume no Tojimari is a masterfully crafted film with a powerful narrative, beautiful voice acting, and stellar animation. This is a must-have watch for all anime enthusiasts around the world who are fans of Makoto Shinkai’s brand of storytelling and world-building.
