The year is 1993, and the changes in world history have been astonishing, with only seven years left before the beginning of the 21st century. Earth's people have lost everything, their hopes, their dreams, their work and their money. Revolutionary things are about to happen: Young boys hide amongst the fantasy world of their computers, ignoring the rest of the families. There is only Sushi or Curry to eat, the computerized refrigerator is often on strike and rumor has it that the Great Octopus is soon to arrive on Earth. This can only mean trouble. In a word, war!
