Sidney Stratton, a humble inventor, develops a special piece of fabric that never gets dirty or worn. This would seem to be a blessing for humanity, but the established manufacturers do not see it so; they try to stop it with every means imaginable! A film that, clearly before its time, focusses on our consumption of Earth’s resources.
