Ewan McGregor & Scarlett Johansen are members of a futuristic society, trapped inside buildings because a fatal plague has killed all life outside. The only place spared is 'The Island', where they are chosen to repopulate via a lottery system. McGregor's character, Lincoln, is more curious than the others-and he begins to doubt the truth of what he's been told about the outside world. A very similar idea was made into a movie in the 70's, entitled THE CLONUS HORROR, though this has a more upbeat ending. It's also Michael Bay's best movie to date.
