Sexmission

Juliusz Machulski

Poland, 1983

REVIEWS

Hibernated Max and Albert wake up after 50 years – after the nuclear war – in an underground, technology-rich society, consisting only of women. Our protagonists are archaeological objects but they pose an erotic threat to the world where males became useless thanks to parthenogenesis. As their only choice is: change sex or die, Albert and Max decide to run away.
