Plot Sypnosis:

The year is 1991. Max and Albert are two pioneers about to embark on the scientific experiment of a lifetime, volunteering to be the first ever cryogenically frozen humans. If all goes well they'll wake up in 3 years to fame and fortune. Luckily for Max and Albert the experiment is a success...until they find out that the year is now 2044, a global war has taken place, the M-Bomb has wiped out all male species on Earth and reproduction is handled via test tubes in a lab. The Congress of the World Women's League is in complete control and they're the only two men alive! What seems like a dream scenario soon turns into a nightmare when they realize males have been demonized and 'The League' may be keeping a sinister secret. They'll have to convince The League that they're ready to serve in the old ways of reproduction or lose their manhood in the process of 'Naturalization'!

SEXMISSION is a side-splitting satire from Polish director Juliusz Machulski that straddles the genre lines of sci-fi and sex-romp in equal measure! Critical and skewering of both chauvinist fears about the extremes of feminism and the Polish government's fallible attempt to pull the wool over its citizen's eyes, it features a cast of Polish all-stars from Jerzy Stuhr (Dekalog) and Olgierd ?ukaszewicz (Interrogation) to Boguslawa Pawelec (Blind Chance) and Dorota Stalinska (Ga-ga: Glory to the Heroes). Vinegar Syndrome Labs is proud to present the North American Blu-ray debut of SEXMISSION!
