Yoshiro celebrated his hundredth birthday many years ago, but every morning before work he still goes running in the park with his rent-a-dog. He is one of the many aged-elderly in Japan and he might, he thinks, live forever if not for the pollution and natural disasters that have scarred the face of the Earth. Yoshiro's only real worry is the future of his great-grandson Mumei, who, like other children of his generation, was born frail and grey-haired, old before he was ever young. A dreamlike story of filial love and glimmering hope, The Last Children of Tokyo is a delicate glimpse of our future.
