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

's Flatland text into Latin to be sung when Arthur Square first sees the 3rd Dimension: "I looked and behold, a new world! Once more I felt myself rising through space. Awestruck at the sight of the mysteries of the Earth my unworthy eye - I said to my companion: "Behold. I am become as a god!"" See more
The end of the movie shows a hypercube surrounded by eight cubes, one of which is the center of Flatland's Area 33H, which is surrounded by six squares. Continuing the analogy, each square should be surrounded by four lines, and each line should be surrounded by two points, yet in the actual Area 33H, each square is only surrounded by one line and each line is surrounded by only one point. Similarly, the other seven cubes in Spaceland do not appear to be surrounded by any squares, lines, or points. See more
