An army librarian named Joe becomes the smartest man on Earth after being preserved in our time and then revived in a future where every single person on Earth is staggeringly unintelligent. Joe finds himself involved in a heavily corporate culture where people speak in broken English and spend a huge portion of their time immersed in extremely lowbrow pop culture. Their world is run almost entirely by huge businesses and malfunctioning machines. Joe finds himself unable to effectively communicate with the citizens of the new world. Over the course of the movie, Joe becomes deeply involved with the strange political problems in the world of the future, including their failing economy, their massive accumulation of garbage, and the unintentional destruction of their agricultural system.
