One fateful day, the Suzuki family - your typical Tokyo middle class family - wake up to a changed world. The electricity has stopped flowing, technology is no longer working, and people aren’t quite sure how to handle it. As the days pass, an initially confusing situation turns desperate - food is running short, prices are inflating rapidly, and society has effectively shut down. With no idea of how the rest of the country - or indeed the world - is faring, the Suzukis decide to leave the city in the hope of finding food and shelter deeper in the countryside. So, with only their bikes and a limited caché of supplies, they embark on an epic, dangerous road trip across a country that is falling apart.
