This is a bizarre, yet unique love story set in the near future where single people, according to the rules of The City, are arrested and transferred to The Hotel. There they are obliged to find a matching mate in 45 days. If they fail, they are transformed into an animal of their choosing and released into The Woods. David, a desperate Man (Colin Farrell), escapes from The Hotel to The Woods where The Loners live. There he falls in love with a short-sighted Woman (Rachel Weisz), although it is against the rules of The Loners.
