Synopsis

The World Sinks Except Japan
Japanese director Minoru Kawasaki (Executive Koala and The Rug Cop) levels his satirical sights on global superpowers, western traditions, and foreign immigrants in this outrageous comedy inspired by the cult 1970s novella of the same name. The year is 2011. Thanks to global warming and shifting tectonic plates, planet Earth's landmass has just gotten a massive overhaul. Japan is the only country on the planet that has managed to avoid being devastated by the unprecedented natural disaster, and it isn't long before refugees from every affected nation are attempting to integrate themselves into Japanese society. And it isn't an easy transition either, because as A-list American actors turn up on television costume samurai dramas and white women go to work for middle-class Japanese families, those who don't sufficiently blend in among Japanese society are arrested. Meanwhile, as the former leaders of China and South Korea become lapdogs for the Japanese Prime Minister, geologists discover that there's more seismic activity on the horizon, and the worst may be yet to come. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
