About the Film

In 2100, the empire of Mortemonde colonized almost all the nations of the Earth and reduced their populations to slavery. Every slave is forced to collect 1000XP every month in Battledream, a video game where they can die for real. Only those who succeed are granted the right to live until the following month. Syanna, a young Martinician slave, refuses to keep living in this condition and decides to fight for her freedom...

Great Lakes connection:

None, but this is a great sci-fi, action/adventure, animated film!
