Fathom Events describes the film’s story:

Tai is now a university student, living alone, working hard at school, and working every day, but with his future still undecided. Meanwhile, Matt and others continue to work on creature incidents and activities that help people with their partner Digimon. When an unprecedented phenomenon occurs, the DigiDestined discover that when they grow up, their relationship with their partner Digimon will come closer to an end.

As a countdown timer activates on the Digivice, they realize that the more they fight with their partner Digimon, the faster their bond breaks. Will they fight for others and lose their partner? The time to choose and decide is approaching fast. There is a short time before “chosen children” will become adults. This is the last adventure of Tai and Agumon.

Digimon, another way to say Digital Monster, is a Japanese media establishment enveloping virtual pet toys, anime, manga, computer games, films, and an exchanging game. The establishment centers around the eponymous animals, who occupy an Digital World, an equal universe that began from Earth’s different correspondence systems.

The establishment was made in 1997 as a progression of virtual pets, similar to and impacted in style by the contemporary Tamagotchi or nano Giga Pet toys. The animals were first intended to look adorable and famous even on the gadgets’ little screens; later advancements had them made with a harder-edged style affected by American funnies. The establishment picked up energy with its first anime manifestation, Digimon Adventure, and an early computer game, Digimon World, both discharged in 1999. A few anime arrangements and movies dependent on them have been discharged, and the computer game arrangement has ventured into classifications, for example, pretending, dashing, battling, and MMORPGs.
