In a dystopian world, roam a pack of thick-skinned boys who grew up to the lullabies of bombs and fireworks. Buto, a nine-year-old kid, is ostracized by the gang leader, Shicha.

The early civilization used to call this toy "Dildo," yet for Buto it is nothing but a great opportunity to get back at Shicha and become the new leader of the group. Will he succeed in his mission?
