Hikari is a boy who is bullied and teased by the other boys at school because he has the odd distinction of having an electricity pole growing out of his back. However, one of his classmates, a girl named Momo, comes to his rescue. Hikari thanks her by sharing his secret possession with her: a time machine. He then activates the time machine which transports him 25 years into a dark, dystopian, world of the future. There he encounters members of the Shinsengumi Vampire Gang in the process of hunting a woman named Dr. Sariba who is revealed to be Momo's future self. She explains to Hikari that she had been long expecting his arrival from the past and that he has a crucial role to play here -- he and he alone must save the world.Written by

This short movie is one of the early works of the TETSUO's director; also Tsukamoto is the principal character of this "amatorial" Super-8 film that talks about two friends: a boy(DENCHU KOZO), with an electric rod driven in his back, and a girl(MOMO)who, in the first part,helps the boy from a beating.Then Denchu Kozo, with a strange invention, docks in an horrible dark future(twenty-five years far) where a group of vampires want to obscure the world doing explose atomic bombs. Here the boy meets Momo, now a soldier-woman, who fights against the monsters bloodsuckers. At the end the boy, with the help of his electric rod's light, will save the world and be back to his time where he'll tell Momo his(their) adventure. In this short we can find some elements that the visionary director will developed in his following works: the human mutation, the rappresentation of cyberpunk apocalyptic worlds, the hypercinetic editing with a lot of cuts.
In a few words: YOU HAVE TO SEE IT TO UNDERSTAND TETSUO.
