POLARIS

project for a feature film by Stefano Lodovichi

In a very near future the Earth is covered in snow and ice after a new Ice Age has started fifteen years before. All forms of technology and communication have been lost, as have most of the Earth’s inhabitants and life has regressed to a primordial stage.
In this world four orphaned teenagers leave the valley were they have grown up and start a journey in search of a legendary Ark that can bring them to the promised land, the world they have never seen, our world.
