Title: Survival Family
Director: Shinobu Yaguchi
Released: 2017
Running Time: 117 minutes
Rated: PG

The Suzukis are an average household living in Tokyo. When the mother tries to make conversation, the father is focused on the TV, the son on listening to music, and the daughter on her smartphone - a typical family, together but divided. One day, the Suzuki household encounters a crisis! They awake to find all electrical appliances have stopped!

They assume it’s just their house, but soon find out the outage has occurred everywhere, and not just in appliances, but also in trains, cars, gas, and water systems. There are no phones or trains to ride to work. They think they can put up with it for the day, but another day passes, and yet another. It’s then the father, Yoshiyuki, makes the decision of a lifetime: “We’re going to escape from Tokyo!”

Is there a future for the family in this world denied all electricity?! Can a failure of a father protect his family?! The curtain rises on the survival life of the Suzuki household! When all is switched off, people are switched on....

Booking available from October 5.
The Embassy of Japan in New Zealand.
