The short film is about a city, die mitten in einer Einöde liegt. This Wasteland spans the whole earth, on which there is no more Vegetation, weil die Menschen alles kaputt gemacht haben und nun auf künstliche Weise für Sauerstoff sorgen müssen.

For unknown reasons, the Earth’s ionosphere has weakened dramatically during the course of the last century, resulting in the collapse of the entire ecosystem. Earth has become an increasingly hostile and uninhabitable place and with no shield to protect it, it is at the full mercy of meteors.
All animal and plant species perished decades ago. All that remains is one small group of Humans who attempt to resist the hostility and hardness of the external environment from SUMER, the last hive city in the world, which has been specifically designed to keep the population alive through oxygen supply systems.
The media manipulates the available information in a manner that is purposely designed to keep people obsessed on the potential of the space Exodus, letting any hope of prevailing on earth go.
A young boy, Hermes, lives alone in a compartment, the property of the government, which is located close to the wall that delimits the city, an area that is highly guarded by the SSW (SUMER Security Watchers).
While observing the desert from the roof of a building, Hermes suddenly sees something that grabs his attention…

The text accompanying the Video erzählt mehr, than the movie itself. Dafür ist er aber irre schön gemacht mit einigen ganz tollen Animationen, clever ideas (horny Bike) and a really nice story. The intro is a bit much, das hätte man durchaus kürzer machen können, but the end is great too.
