Point 2


Exhibition of works and original Sci-Fi story by renowned animator Yasufumi Soejima

Somewhere in multidimensional space, our hero Nunuku dreams of rising among the social ranks of Neo-Babylon – a land built upon the elite domination of others.
Only the top elites profit from society in this world, while people of the lower classes are reduced to unwitting cogs in a machine built for their exploitation.
Nunuku escapes this social system and goes on a journey of exploration to learn about the real world.
