The Earth has been invaded by extraterrestrials. They send “domes” to replace our lands with theirs. Humans can do nothing but run away and wait for the end of our world.

Soh Tokita is a retired high school teacher who has joined the UN force dedicated to maintain order of the world. But his wife, Misaki, who once was his student, has not been able to accept the reality that the world has gone to ruin. She has kept living in her beautiful memories and in a fictional ordinary life. All Tokita can do is watch over her, acting like nothing is wrong.

But now the order has come through for them to leave for an evacuation shelter. Misaki cannot escape from the tragic world any more.

With Hiroyuki Watanabe (Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack).
