This is another case where the book was turned into a movie based upon it, but if you read the book, it bears little resemblance to the movie. Unlike most dystopian authors, the author of this book did not provide any explanation for the existence of the world. For some reason in the past, men became infertile and humanity now faces extinction. Society has devolved into fear mongering and extreme measures by the government to keep the peace as society tries to save itself. In this world, a baby has the ability to stop a war.
