In this gripping dystopia about life after climate apocalypse, humans can only live until 50 before they are turned into trees.
Budapest, 2123. Climate disaster has rendered the earth uninhabitable, except in one sealed enclave where the last of humanity can be found: yet survival is contingent on every human being turned into a tree at the age of 50. Reckoning with grief, Nora volunteers her body before her time – and her husband Stefan embarks on a dangerous journey across the earth’s barren landscape to save her life. A spectacular, rotoscoped sci-fi odyssey imagining how we come back from the brink.
