The exploding popularity of animé inspired this festival flashback from 2015.  Patema is a precocious teen who loves to explore the caverns and tunnels of her subterranean world until she falls into the DANGER ZONE! Saved by an equally rebellious young man who is charmed by this upside-down girl, they fight to save her from the totalitarian government that seeks to annihilate the freethinking people they represent.
