Something to take seriously? Not in the slightest. If you're used to the over the top antics and slapstick humour of Asian cinema then this is for you. If not, probably not a movie high on your 'must see' list.
Blue-collar workers Fujio and Mitsuo share a dream, to become famous fighters. Tokyo has becomes occupied by zombies, the dead walk and the two men face a crisis of mankind. Despite the turn of events they have a plan. Real men go to Russia. After an unfortunate turn of events, the two are separated before they can fulfill their dream together. Through the trials of a dystopian future their dream will not die and one turn of fate leads them back together, to face their destinies in a way they could never have imagined.
