- How Tokyo crawled back from the rubble of war
World War II has just ended. Tokyo is a destitute, broken, lawless place driven by hunger and greed. From over 100,000 pages of declassified CIA documents and hours of newly discovered footage shot by American occupation forces and private individuals, NHK resurrects Tokyo during this pivotal year, Year Zero. Seen through the eyes of a young man from the present who finds himself transported back in time, the program utilizes colorized footage and cutting-edge video compositing to reveal how a desperate people laid the foundations of today's megalopolis.
