PLUG, THe NeW WORLD
Animated short film [Japan]
PLUG, a new Zero Emission character from NISSAN MOTOR CO., LTD, is the central character of this high-definition stop-motion animation. “The world will move in the right direction if everybody gets connected.” is the concept behind this story, set on a planet similar to Earth in the near future whose residents live on an energy like electricity. At first this world, with its lushly blooming meadows, seems idyllic, but the highly polished visuals tell a story that holds a strange fascination as it draws the viewer in the elaborate world.
