The citizens of Elysium live a life of luxury while the citizen of the Earth struggle to survive on a daily basis and are desperate to escape the planet, but those who maintain Elysium will stop at nothing to enforce anti-immigration laws and preserve their citizens’ lifestyle. Terminally diagnosed with cancer, 36-year-old Max DeCosta (Matt Damon), is in desperate need to get to Elysium to be cured and he reluctantly takes on a dangerous mission which pits him against Elysium’s Secretary Delacourt (Jodie Foster) and her forces.”
