Synopsis :

Tokyo, a few days after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami: Kyoko leaves her husband after watching earthquake footage on television for five days non-stop. Her husband, Komura gets fired from his 
job and takes off on a soul-searching trip with strange women. And Katagiri, an accountant, comes home only to find a giant frog asking him to save Tokyo from another earthquake. Through memories, dreams and fantasies, influenced by their own vision of the earthquake – in the form of evil trees, a giant worm, a secret wish, an unknown password, a mysterious empty box and dark endless corridors – Kyoko, Komura and Katagiri, all three try to reconnect with whom they really are.
