In a dystopian 2054, three young rebels go on a journey to find traces of the long lost beauty of nature, hoping to discover what happened to their planet. The answer lies in the past and when they find the key to a decade – the 2020s – when a colourful future was still possible, everything changes. In this unusual road movie, fiction meets scientific fact to explore the most pressing question of our time: extinction.
The new film by Marten Persiel, director of THIS AIN'T CALIFORNIA.
