Dystopian thriller follows a former activist's attempts to transport a pregnant woman to a sanctuary in a world gripped by near-total infertility.

The year is 2027. Eighteen years have passed on Earth since the last human birth, transforming our planet as we know it into a dystopian hellscape populated by humans fearing their inevitable extinction. Hope unexpectedly springs up from nowhere in the form of Kee, a woman whose mysterious pregnancy compels activist-turned-disillusioned government bureaucrat Theo Faron to accompany her on a treacherous mission to a sanctuary to give birth at the behest of a group calling themselves the Human Project. Though the Project's intentions seem noble and legitimate enough at first blush, Theo must work to uncover the true heroes and villains in an already-troublesome situation in this loose near-future retelling of the Nativity story.
