Plot Summary: On August 10 2002, the eruption of Mount Fuji, as well as a series of large-scale earthquakes and tsunamis, inflicts tremendous damage to Japan, sending the country into a state of emergency. Furthermore, another massive earthquake hits Japan on August 15, splitting the country into two. While Japanese refugees are taken in by various countries, the Japanese government accepts aid from China and the United States, which eventually causes China to govern the North, and the USA to govern the South. 15 years later, Japanese refugees residing in Taiwan and native Taiwanese citizens find themselves clashing with one another, due to job competition and the unimproved conditions of the Japanese refugees. Genichiro Ryu is a survivor of the catastrophic events that took place in Japan, but was raised in Taiwan by a couple who adopted him. He gets himself involved in the situation between the Taiwanese and the Japanese, hoping that the two parties will be able to coexist with one another.
