From Fri. Aug. 7 @ 9am to Sun. Aug. 9 @ 9pm

When an extended global electrical blackout occurs, the world grinds to a halt. Salaryman Yoshiyuki Suzuki decides to escape from Tokyo with his wife and two kids.

Their hilarious and heartfelt journey teaches them independence and cooperation as the kids grow up and the parents learn the error of their rigid paternalistic ways. They must also face and array of challenges including furious rainstorms, rabid dogs and runaway poultry! This feel-good family-friendly, disaster comedy – from the director of Dance with Me, Wood Job!, Swing Girls and Water Boys – is guaranteed to please.
