Cloud Atlas

Content

A young notary at sea who realizes that brotherly love is only an empty phra-se among outlaws; an ambitious young composer whose help is needed by an aging genius in search of immortality; a young journalist who uncovers a high-level plot; a publisher who finds himself held captive against his will in a prison-like home for the elderly; a cloned Korean waitress who fights for human rights; and an eccentric who bravely confronts the all-destructive forces in a post-apocalyptic world. 500 years, six episodes, six lives: Their stories cross the human sky like clouds merging and dispersing and spanning the entire universe – revealing a glimmer of hope on the horizon.
