As a beautiful daughter of the noble family del Moral, Fana was proposed by Prince Carlo, who is the crown prince of their country Levamme. However, since Levamme is at war with Amatsuvian, the marriage had to wait until the war ends. Meanwhile, as a bestado, the lowest caste in Levamme, Charles had always dreamed of flying and eventually became the ace pilot of the air force. Although he was often mistreated, a glorious chance came about when the Amatsuvian bombarded del Moral's home in order to get rid of the future empress. Charles was then entrusted with the top secret mission of delivering the princess to the prince.

This is a rather generic movie with sometimes questionable character motivations... I guess that is thanks to the LNs it's based on. It isn't bad by any means but seeing that the screenplay was penned by Satoko Okudera who did the same for three of Mamoru Hosoda's movies it is a bit disappointing. It ends rather open ended and the synopsis for the 2014 spin-off series reads similar; it is more about the point in time rather than an actual story.
