Based on Edwin Abott's book "Flatland", this is an animated film about geometric characters living in a two-dimensional world. When a young girl named "Hex" decides to "think outside the box" (in a world where such thought is forbidden), her life becomes in danger and it is up to her grandfather to save her life. Written by

Did You Know?
In the book, written in 1884, females in Flatland were line segments. As such they were hard to see, and a dangerously sharp risk of impalement to other shapes. Flatland law required that they wiggled their back end while they walked so that other shapes could see them and not be impaled. Flatland women were considered essentially 1-dimensional workers and in accordance with their lack of angles, assigned the lowest of low importance.
This movie did away with that obvious sexism and gave females equal geometry. See more
The spinning cube at the center of Area 33H shows up as a changing hexagon within Flatland. By analogy, the spinning hypercube at the end of the movie should appear as a changing polyhedral solid, but instead it appears as the full convex-hull three-dimensional projection. See more
