Five years after graduating from Leeds University, life-long friends Matthew, Charlotte, Frank, Tanya, Alistair and Sophie find themselves on opposite ends of the social spectrum as they struggle to adapt to life in the capital.
In a futuristic city sharply divided between the working class and the city planners, the son of the city's mastermind falls in love with a working class prophet who predicts the coming of a savior to mediate their differences.
The insularity of the producers shines brightly in this cursory look at half a dozen "important" cities in the world - half of which are American, like the producers, the historians, and the other interviewees of minor celebrity.
I'm certain there a local historians for London, Paris, and Rome who could provide far better insights than the Americans who chose to opine on these wonderful places. But that might not have been satisfactory for the intended audience.
It could have been far better, far more informative, because the CGI going backwards in time was quite illuminating. Instead, I got the feeling that the non-US cities were regarded as quaint, novel, and not nearly so desirable locations as the "home-grown" ones
