It is the near future, Japan has become contaminated with massive amounts of radiation. With 80% of Japan severely contaminated, the government officially decides to abandon the country and the government begins evacuating residents by lots. Left behind in the swelling exodus is a South African refugee, Tanya, and her android caretaker, Leona. As people pass them by, the two are left alone together to contemplate life and death, and the distinction between robot and human.

Based on the play Sayonara II by Oriza Hirata.
