Billed as “a true story, set in the future,” One Man Dies a Million Times takes place in Leningrad where botanists Alyssa and Maskim work at the Institute of Plant Genetic Resources, a seed bank preserving the global genetic diversity of plants with the potential to transform modern agriculture. Warfare cuts the city of Leningrad off from the rest of Russia, and from electricity and food. As the citizens of Leningrad begin to starve, the two young botanists must protect their priceless cache of edible seeds from the city. One Man Dies a Million Times is a film about fighting for survival, fighting for the future, and fighting for the things and the people you love—in perhaps an all-too-real future scenario.
