Does humanity even deserve to be saved?
We are in the distant future and a tipping point has been reached in the history of mankind as a devastating force permanently destroys all life on earth. With the help of a child, a small group of people manages to reach a safe place. But life in this safe room is not simple: the survivors are constantly at odds - and the desire to surrender to the destructive outside force remains. Is humanity worth saving?
In 'Mockumentary of a Contemporary Savior' choreographer Wim Vandekeybus brings a perceptive portrait of a messiah as a fictional figure, reflected in the seven characters. The ambiguous relationship with the child in the outside world, internal conflicts, cultural differences and human urges and instincts: it creates a continuous journey of commotion. Utopia and dystopia at a glance. Immortality dominates, suicide offers no way out. Nothing is what it seems in this futuristic reality.
