Earth has suffered through extinction events, wars, and horrendous weather cataclysms. Humanity has almost been wiped out, save for nine mega cities around the globe and smaller villages scattered through the wilds. One day, Earth receives a message from benevolent aliens that the planet will soon be ravaged by yet another weather event, but there is hope in saving the children. Five thousand bracers are sent down with the instructions to put them on children, who will then be transported to another world to restart the human race. Tala finds one of these bracers and puts it on her younger brother Hototo. They then must start the dangerous journey through the wilds to the extraction point in one of the megapolis cities, battling beasts, zealots, and other humans along the way.

Eight young children play amidst destroyed buildings and derelict cars that spell out with certainty an apocalypse they all lived through. Some doodle on the buildings, others strum guitars. All of them are vampires. A few find rodents to eat, but then, they smell something they've never encountered before - a human - and it starts to make them salivate. A few of them attack the human and taste blood that is more delicious than anything they've had before, so they continue to hunt for more humans. Half of the group is reluctant to leave the city and disobey their creators, but the others can never go back to draining rats again.
