In a dystopian future, a dictator rounds up all the 'ugly' children to make the country a 'better' place. Using propaganda and alt-truth to convince the population that this is a good idea, children across the nation are sent to special schools, which turn out to be internment camps. Led by Paul, a boy with big ears, several of those identified as ugly fight back using social media and attempt to overthrow the corrupt regime. A stark warning against the rise of the far-right and the power of activism and social media.

The film will also be available to view via the Leeds Film Player.
