"Japan is sinking, and yet, people believe..."
In the year 2020, a sudden and devastating earthquake strikes the ordinary and peaceful life in Japan.
In the middle of a terrible chaos, Ayumu and Gou, a brother and sister from an ordinary family living in Tokyo, try to escape with their parents from the city while the earthquake continues relentlessly and the Japanese islands start to fall one by one, hour by hour. The tragic event forces them to make a difficult choice between life and death and separates them from each other. By confronting this absurd reality, Ayumu and Gou learn to survive in harsh circumstances while fighting for their future.
