In the future, humans live in a biodome, where, at age 50, they’re implanted with a seed that turns them into a tree for needed oxygen. One couple will defy this in Tibor Bánóczki and Sarolta Szabó’s animated dystopian film.

Set in 2123, people are compliant to surrender their body at the age of 50 to the greater good of survival. But when Nora, a grief-stricken woman, elects to undergo her implant early, her husband Stefan is in a race against time to reverse the process. But is that even possible? Using eye-popping rotoscoping techniques, Hungarian animation duo Tibor Bánóczki and Sarolta Szabó, working with leading geologists, botanists and meteorologists in their home country, have created a dystopian future like you’ve never seen before. Part love story, part dystopia, part eco-fantasia, White Plastic Sky is a pure cinematic experience.
