What It’s About: In the year 2274, upon reaching 30 years of age, all citizens must undergo a ritual of population control renewal called Carrousel. Logan 5 hunts down people who try to avoid this compulsory event, but when he gets a new assignment it not only changes his life, but affects the future of humankind.
Why Watch it Today?: Quoting a scene from the film: “Lastday, Capricorn 29’s. Year of the City: 2274. Carrousel begins.” If you do the math, the 29th day in the Capricorn period of the zodiac is January 18th.
