Logan's Run

Show Summary

Based on the popular movie by the same name, Logan's Run portrays a futuristic society where citizens are only allowed to live until age 30.

After the holocaust of a nuclear war, a domed city was created to put the remaining humans from the United States into, in hopes that sometime in the future, those humans could once again populate the world. To keep the crop of humas "fresh", they are only allowed to live until they are 30 years old, where they are terminated and a "replacement", a genetically created test tube baby is provided, keeping the population constant. Occasionally, a citizen doesn't want to be terminated and they "run" and try to hide.

Logan is a 26 year old police officer who job is to terminate runners. He is called a Sandman because they put you to sleep...forever. He is given a top secret assignment to try and escape to freedom and find the mythical place called 'Sanctuary' which is really just outside the Domed City. Only he is pursued by his former friend, Francis, another Sandman, who doesn't know of his assignment and attempts to terminate him.
