A recent discovery of films from post-WWII Tokyo has provided valuable and, in some cases, unknown information about life in Japan at the time. We learn that Tokyo swallowed people, materials and money like a black hole, a metaphor for the black markets that sprang up overnight peddling goods from the Japanese army and U.S. military. People dived into these markets to survive the tough times. And those who profited gained power, moving the economy and politics forward. Tokyo Black Hole reveals the rarely discussed truth about real-life events in "Year Zero" of post-war Tokyo.
