Synopsis: "Children of Men" envisages a world one generation
from now that has fallen into anarchy on the heels of an infertility defect
in the population. The world's youngest citizen has just died at 18, and
humankind is facing the likelihood of its own extinction.
Set against a backdrop of London torn apart by violence and warring nationalistic
sects, "Children of Men" follows disillusioned bureaucrat Theo
(Owen) as he becomes an unlikely champion of Earth's survival. When the
planet's last remaining hope is threatened, this reluctant activist is
forced to face his own demons and protect her from certain peril.
Directed and co-written by acclaimed filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón ("Harry
Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban," "Y tu mamá también"),
"Children of Men" also stars Julianne Moore as the leader of
an underground opposition group and Michael Caine as Jasper.
