We consider the asymptotic behavior of solutions to a generalized crystalline motion which describes evolution of plane curves driven by nonsmooth interfacial energy. Our main results say that solution polygonal curves expand to infinity or shrink to a single point depending on the size of initial data and the sign of the driving force term. In the expanding case, we show that any rescaled solution polygon converges to the boundary of the Wulff shape for the driving force term and hence if the driving force term is a constant, then any solution polygon approaches to an expanding regular polygon even if the motion is anisotropic. We also give lower and upper bounds of the extinction time for the shrinking case. In the appendix, we shall explain the notion of a discrete curvature and crystalline curvature from a numerical point of view.
