Can't Judge〜Corona and the Japanese government 20XX version〜

In the movie, in 20xx, Japan has already become a dependency to another country and become Pandora state.

A surviving Japanese public servant does a routine job and handles contrasting aliens.

A peaceful but state-dependent lazy alien on the one hand. A violent alien thinking of plundering on the other.

These aliens appear opposite, but both of them may lead to totalitarianism.

The same actor acts the two different aliens, but there is a possibility that Chicheians may spy for Fuwari. Actually, Japan is now in a situation of having a potential terror.

This movie is a satire warning Japanese to have a resolute attitude when the specter of a totalitarian state rises.
