In a future utopia, science continues the quest for eternal youth, but in doing so unleashes a toxin into the world with devastating consequences: accelerated aging. During a mass evacuation with airships, lovers Dante and Irea are separated, with Irea taking drastic and disastrous measures to find him. A film with outstanding technological innovations that creates a feeling of silent and animated films altogether.
