The setting is in the distant future. All the physical needs of mankind are provided for by an all-present "Machine," which controls men's lives through a vast series of tunnels inside the Earth. Man's every need is provided; he has gained the ultimate Utopia. But what if one day the machine stopped? This remarkable short made-for-TV feature explores the shock that would fall upon the spoiled descendants of humankind, and the horrifying possibility of having to return to Earth's surface. Fine acting with a great script to boot. From 35mm Kinescope.
