Humanity is faced with an extreme situation where only those with a strong desire to live will survive.

For some reason, the shelter she arrives at values family over everything. As the "mother" of a "masquerade family", she faces harsh days. Behind Shoko's explosive desire to survive is a desire to see her son again.
