    Synopsis Sabu and Miki, a young couple in Fukushima, are disturbed by a sudden explosion at the nearby nuclear plant. As instructed, they quickly make their escape from the area contaminated with radiation.
    After finding a place in Tokyo, they discover that Miki is pregnant. Terrified that the baby could be affected, Miki tries to get an abortion, but Sabu locks her up. He searches for evidence that would reassure her, only to witness a newborn that proves otherwise. But Miki decides to take responsibility of the life they created. Blaming the need for electricity in having nuclear reactors in the first place, Sabu tries to cut off power flowing into Tokyo city.
