Filmed in a single take at a junkyard inside the WWII Wendover airfield (launch site of the Enola Gay), 20th century projections of the future collide with 21st century realities. The narrative is an episode of Astroby, created in 1952, about a fictional future set in the year 2000. It includes 20th century scientific projections, such as genetically modified food and life forms. Present-day objects match the historic cartoon with animism of a child at play. The character of Astroboy was originally meant to provide accessible commentary on the ethical use of technology in the nuclear age.
