In the near future, private detective Aline Ruby and her android partner are hired by a wealthy businessman to track down a notorious hacker. On Mars, they descend deep into the underbelly of the planet’s capital city where they uncover a darker story of brain farms, corruption, and a missing girl who holds a secret about the robots that threaten to change the face of the universe.
This masterfully crafted animation film presents a fascinating, in-depth dystopian portrait of life on Mars in the year 2200. A theme that has already helped “Metropolis”, “Blade Runner”, and “Ghost in the Shell” become iconic works of genre cinema. Advanced science fiction!
