One dark night, all the women in the world disappear. Without warning and without explanation. In the backstreets of a crumbling city, a lonely man stumbles across a woman who has left behind. He is desperate to hang on to her by force if necessary. But this is a woman who has no need for men... Planet Man is a "film noir" for modern times, shot through with dark comedy and the shimmer of a "Twilight Zone" fantasy.
