A very original story
22 February 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

this title has one of the best and most original stories i have seen. i first saw this on sci-fi, then uncut on video. little differences. anyway, the animation is average, but the story and characters make up for all of it. i loved the idea of our civilization getting destroyed into desert and all of the deception and sub-story involved. this is a very good title to see. it also teaches us a valuable lesson: cherish what you have and what the land does for us.
