In the near future, the world has become so overpopulated that countries are forced to cut down on their citizens. But before making the complicated and difficult decision who is allowed to stay alive, people get a last opportunity to defend their value in front of a commission. The unemployed animator and part-time clothing seller Nana Bird (29) is one of them. If she fails to convince the commission (and herself) that she is of any value for the future of human kind, she will be ‘recycled’.
The Anthill is a sci-fi drama film about performance pressure, our place and value in this world and the countless ways human beings will fight for their existence.
