Nothing to be Written
The soldiers in the trenches of World War I were able to send postcards home but all they were allowed to write on them was their signature. All communication took place using a set of approved phrases. The unique style of drawings inspired by the messages on these postcards also show the circumstances  in which they were written and received.

The consequences of the ecological crisis depicted in a dystopian vision of 2068. Our planet has been destroyed and only the most privileged were able to get a ship that could save them. Everyone else ended up in camps. The film is also a reflection on the difficult decisions in conflict situations.
