The future looks bleak in LX 2048.
Set no too off in the future, the sun rays became too radioactive and toxic for human beings to venture during the daytime. Humans end up cloning themselves for daytime work and entertain themselves virtually in the comfort of their homes.
The film stars James D’Arcy (Dunkirk, Marve’s Agent Carter), Anna Brewster (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Versailles), and Delroy Lindo (Malcolm X, Da 5 Bloods). Guy Moshe directed and wrote the script.
Here’s the official synopsis:
It is 2048. Mankind has by now destroyed the ozone layer to such a degree that normal human beings cannot be out in daytime. People spend their waking hours at night and almost everything is done inside the virtual realm. From work to school to socializing, most people just stay home and conduct their affairs from their Virtual Reality designated spaces. Mental depression has become so prevalent that the entire population is required to take the state issued pill 001LithiumX.
In this new world order, Adam Bird is a rare breed. Adam insists on waking up during the day. He insists on leaving his house and going to work in a physical office. He has 3 kids in a time when most people barely breed, and he adamantly refuses to take 001LithiumX, fighting to stay human in a world that is rapidly transforming into the artificial.
But things change when Adam discovers his heart is mysteriously failing. With no possibility for an organ transplant, Adam is now scheduled to be replaced by a cloned upgrade – an improved version of himself that will be supplied to his estranged wife as part of the Premium 3 government insurance plan. Spiraling out of control, Adam starts living on borrowed time, seeking to find a solution before his replica will be sent to raise his kids and replace his existence across the board.
