In a future world, not too different from ours, four characters struggle to evade the control of a worldwide government that watches and educates its citizens through a sophisticated computer network. Ushima-Next recreates and vindicates the panic cinema created by Roland Topor, Alejandro Jodorowsky and Fernando Arrabal, who also participates as an actor in this film full of powerful black and white images. A radical, special movie that demonstrates that, in the 21st century, it’s still possible to find a surprise in the field of local science fiction.
