The paleo-climatologist Jack Hall, after returning from an Antarctic core, makes an appeal to the world, in particular to the president of the United States who pays little attention to him. Jack found that the continuous release of fresh water into the oceans caused by the progressive thawing of the poles could cause the currents to reverse, and set the conditions for a new glaciation on earth. The news is ignored and catastrophes soon occur: hailstones the size of a pineapple scourge Tokyo, hurricanes of unprecedented violence hit Hawaii, New Delhi is buried in snow, and Los Angeles is swept by a series of devastating tornadoes. As they all flee south, Jack must be able to reach New York in freezing cold to save his son Sam who is in the Manhattan Public Library.

The 47 samurai who were orphaned of their master (and therefore “ronin”) will decide to take revenge against the shogun and all the demonic court that revolves around him, well aware that this will mean a death sentence.
