Worldwide infertility makes for a hopeless future in Alfonso Cuarón’s CHILDREN OF MEN.
In 2027 women have inexplicably become infertile and the world is in a steady, chaotic decline. Set in London, Children of Men shows the grittiness and violence that emerges from society knowing there isn’t a future. In this realistic imagining of the world’s end, all hope seems to be lost. But, eighteen years since the last baby was born, a disillusioned bureaucrat becomes an unlikely champion of the human race when he is asked by his former lover to escort a young pregnant woman out of England as quickly as possible. In a thrilling race against time, he will risk everything to deliver the miracle the whole world has been waiting for…new life.
