|Submersion of Japan|
Director: Shiro Moritani
Cast: Keiju Kobayashi, Hiroshi Fujioka, Ayumi Ishida, Tetsuro Tamba, Rhonda Leigh Hopkins
Racked by earthquakes and volcanos, Japan is slowly sinking into the sea. A race against time and tide begins as Americans and Japanese work together to salvage some fraction of the disappearing Japan.
After the sinking of a Japanese island, a research submarine is dispatched to investigate. It is learned that due to
shifts in the teutonic plate, Japan itself would sink into the ocean within a year.
Although there are a few dramatic sub-plots, most of the movie concentrates on the efforts of the Japanese government to mitigate the pending disaster.
