In 2034, Japan is divided into North and South. Yoriko is a nurse living in the north, who lost her daughter due to the northern war. One night, she gets abducted by guerrilla terrorists and learns that her daughter is still alive in a form of “information life”: collective memories of the dead souls. Yoriko gets involved with the hacker resistance to meet her daughter again, in exchange of carrying a mysterious dead body from North to South.
