The '30s of Tomorrow long behind him, Sky Captain (Jude Law) spends the '50s of the Future as Handicapped Accessible Buildings Captain, whose dreams of ascending to Space Captain have been dashed by a car accident during a brief stint as Boulevard Captain.
In this dystopian(!) future(?), human genetic engineering is here, genetic screening is rampant, and every CEO is a GMO. Well, Handicapped Accessible Buildings Captain (Jerome Morrow for short) has all the right G’s in all the right places (and you can bet your A’s his T’s are crossed), but the contents of his genes can’t make up for the contents of his jeans i.e. his useless noodle legs...
To raise money for an elevator because his poignant-but-pointless spiral staircase has stranded him in the basement, Jerome begins to sell his urine to the highest bidder, lending his prestigious genetic identity to some unlucky 100% organic, non-GMO, gluten-free wannabe-astronaut with a heart condition.
The movie’s mostly about that guy.
