About this submission

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. In his quest to seek revenge from his runty nemesis, Buto finds a toy in the ruins that resembles the terrifying missiles he sees in the sky. 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?
