ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE FUTURE: 2121
FRI 2 JUNE
The Earth’s surface has become uninhabitable due to climate crises and famine. Family units exist in underground homes run by a strict authoritarian regime. Population numbers are closely controlled and the ‘Scarcity Laws’ state that older generations must be destroyed in exchange for new lives.
The life of a family of four composed of a wife, husband, child, and grandmother, is threatened by the impending arrival of a baby.
