Movie or TV Series Plot
Planet Earth, the year 2027. Not a single child has been born in 19 years. The world has succumbed to despair and anarchy and, after increasingly desperate attempts to find and eliminate the cause of humanity's infertility, is just waiting for a miracle. In his dark and shocking vision of the near future, director Alfonso Cuarón (Mexican Ride, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) takes us into the near future, inspired by the famous science fiction novel of the same name by the queen of mystery novels, P.D. James.
Thanks to a totalitarian establishment, only Britain can resist all-encompassing chaos. It pays a terrible price - civil rights are severely curtailed and occasional attempts at resistance are brutally suppressed - but Theo (Clive Owen), a London bureaucrat who is just passively waiting for his end, doesn't care. That is, until he finds himself in the back of a van with a sack over his head and eventually comes face to face with his former love Julian (Julianne Moore), who heads one of the many resistance groups and has a special task for Theo - to secure a transit visa for one of her comrades in arms and get her safely out of the country.
During the journey, the destination of which is an asylum run by the Human Project, Theo discovers that his protégé Kee is no ordinary refugee. On the contrary - she's a person many people would be willing to kill for. She is eight months pregnant and represents the miracle humanity has been waiting for for nineteen years. On the run from the anarchists who would like to destroy her in order to maintain the current impasse, and the representatives of the regime who would like to exploit her for their political ends, Theo and Kee become the very precarious, but nevertheless the only hope of our civilization.
