"Plus d'enfants, plus de futur, plus d'espoir. Année 2027 : depuis 18 ans, aucune naissance n'a eu lieu. Theo (Clive Owen) s'est résigné à vivre dans cette société sans avenir, jusqu'au jour où son ex-compagne Julian (Julianne Moore) lui demande de protéger l'ultime espoir du genre humain : une jeune femme enceinte. Dans une course effrénée contre la montre, Theo aidé par son ami Jasper (Michael Caine), va tout tenter pour sauver le miracle que la Terre entière attendait." (Source : jaquette)
