Downsizing

In the near future Norwegian scientists find a unique way to combat overpopulation and global warming by ‘downsizing’, an irreversible process that shrinks organic material, minimizing waste and boosting wealth. Years later Downsizing has become a global sensation and struggling couple Paul and Audrey Safranek are looking to go through the process and give up their hard lives as full-size people to shrink, receive tons of cash and a mansion at Leisureland, though after Paul downsizes he discovers Audrey couldn’t do it, leaving him alone in this strange new world. Paul befriends Vietnamese activist Ngoc Lan Tran, who was shrunk against her will and almost died crossing illegally into Leisureland. Paul’s eyes are opened to an all new world of putting others first through Ngoc and her helping personality to the down-and-out of the downsized.
