A transcendental exploration of reversed morals in a future where gay’s the word and to be straight is a taboo. In the deep South of the USA, homophobic politician Tom Holdsworth and his gay campaign manager Bobby are killed in a car crash. When their bodies are unfrozen 150 years later, they find themselves in a world where heterosexuality is illicit. But how far does this rude awakening really take us from the corruption of the world we know today?
