the story took place a year after the series. Okabe went through a tough journey across multiple World Lines after the invention of D-Mail, text messages that could be sent to the past, and landed at a possible Steins Gate World Line, where all his friends wouldn't be dead in a future ruled by SERN. however, he soon started to feel the side effects of constant time travel, causing him to vanish from existence. only Kurisu remembered him through déjà vu. it is now up to Kurisu to find a way to bring Okabe back.
the film was a finale to its series, closing the loop holes that the story created since the very first episode. this installment had little plot as its main focus was on the depths of the relationship between Okabe and Kurisu, proven to be the most heart wrenching, even breathtaking but still masterfully handled. the whole progress would mean a lot for those who watched the series, but little to those who didn't. the moment Kurisu breakdown not being able to remember Okabe but knowing somehow that someone important was gone, was every bit emotionally engaging to its viewers.
