SYNOPSIS

In a near future where freedom is forbidden, children are taken away from their families and sent to concentration camps at their city’s periphery and made to serve a strict military regime. Once this area falls under siege a teenager is forced to leave behind everything he loves in the hopes of escaping war.

En un futuro cercano donde la libertad se ha prohibido en la periferia de la ciudad, un atormentado adolescente se ve presionado a dejar atrás todo lo que ama, como única esperanza para escapar de la guerra.
