The Rat King‘s plot synopsis: “2100. Nuclear war has wiped out most of mankind and left the Earth’s surface uninhabitable. The survivors head underground surviving in a brutal, oppressive society run and monitored by the Company. When a Company satellite crashes, The Company pulls one of its grunt workers, James, out of the lines to retrieve it. Given 16hrs of air and a tracking device, James heads up to the surface but what he finds is no satellite.” The first films that will come to the viewers’ mind when watching this short film are 12 Monkeys and Nineteen Eighty-Four. The Patrol Android (Zach Sanchez) in The Rat King is straight from anime.
