In a world of useless products, police brutality, pre-paid dreams and a list of Violations so long if you laugh too loudly you will be fined. Misner Corporation has invented a new source of energy which has given them a global monopoly on all facets of human life, creating a totalitarian society ruled by one man, Misner. Anyone not willing to work for Misner's regime, lives underground in a dark world of insane 'system dropouts'. Only coming above ground for the 1 hour of darkness which takes place each day when a giant ball of rubbish floats between the sun and the earth. Finnegan Wright a lower level worker at Misner Corp. is taken on an enthralling journey when forced to live underground by one of the 'System dropouts' who convinces Finnegan that he can change the fate of the world by Killing Misner. A satire which comments on the way humans are so easily fooled into buying products they don't need, having ridiculous jobs and worshiping leaders that have no respect for the planet ...Written by

A interesting watch!
Viewed this in Newtown when it was the opening night film of the Fantastic Planet film fest. I was surprised to see such a unique film at a Sci Fi festival. Great story and boy does it look nice! Reminded me of some more euro style films rather than the usual Australian films we are used ta seeing!
Bring back genre film-making I say. Australia needs more films like this. More genre film-making.
This film won 'Best Australian Film' at the awards of Fantastic Planet and rightly so! It is great. It is a little off the wall and I am sure there will be some sooky old Australians who won't like it because they just want boring ozzy dramas like movie versions of home and away!
This film rocks on many levels!
