'There are Survivors'
The largest mega-typhoon ever in history strikes Japan and destroys Tokyo!!
252: SIGNAL OF LIFE (252: Seizonsha Ari), the biggest disaster drama ever to strike the screens of Japan, will move everyone to tears. It's a drama of extreme conditions, told from both sides of the rescue operation in the aftermath of a disaster; the survivors trapped in the collapsed subway station and the rescuers attempting to save them against the devastating force of nature. This spectacular catastrophe was shown for the first time at Cannes Film Market and attracted international attention. 252: SIGNAL OF LIFE tells the story of a natural disaster, and this global concern is realistically depicted with a Hollywood-scale production. The ferocity of nature has been visualized in an unprecedented scale through real scenes and CG. This is the story of the greatest escape drama and a high-risk rescue operation, with life or death for the survivors divided by only 18 minutes!
In the inescapable underground structure, the survivors both help and confront each other in a struggle for survival. Above the ground facing the hazard of a mega-typhoon and a potential evacuation, the rescuers continue their rescue-search attempts. The survivors' desperate will to survive and the rescuers' fierce determination to save them are connected with a single code, 2-5-2, a Hyper Rescue distress code to indicate there are survivors. When a 252 is transmitted from underground with the hope of rescue, the rescuers know that they have a job to do. They have only 18 minutes to save the survivors when the eye of the storm arrives. In the 18 minutes that could determine life from death, this emotionally involving human drama begins'
Another focus of the movie is the Hyper Rescue, the fire department's special rescue unit. This is the first movie ever to depict these specialists in action. For authenticity, the Tokyo Fire Department 8th Division Hyper Rescue Unit helped in the principal photography. With their cooperation, the movie features realistic and detailed rescue operations.
