The story of a family who installs a computer game in their small flat in Tokyo. Every corner of the city, every layer of society is under the spell of this virtual reality game: M². The game has a simple rule: the one who wins, leads the house and accordingly each one’s own room enlarges or shrinks via moving walls. What happens, when an ordinary family in one of the most advanced cities in the world starts living in two different worlds? What happens, when that fine line between reality and fantasy begins to blur, when a computer game controls the space you live in, re-defines your real life?
