Plastic Child is about a journey of a child who lives in a contaminated plastic world. He is the heir to a single living plant which gives him the air to breath and eventually delivers hope for the humankind. Plastic Child is part of the trilogy Emerald Green, which deals with a dystopian world, where nature has been rendered extinct, breathable air has become scarce, and the sun has vanished due to the human error and the exploitation of natural resources.
