Make love, not war.

 

“Human wants are unlimited while resources are limited." To compete for resources, countries around the world come up with an immortal "Global Virtual War". The top ranked country will gain all the rights to exploit, utilize and distribute world resources. As a result, all men are recruited into the army, which turns women's lives upside down. In order to make a change, women inflamed a revolution lead by the spirit of the mysterious "Lysistrata", wrestling with the authority to return men from the battlefield to their soft beds. "Is this a crusade of men fighting for their country or a sex war of women fighting for their dignity?"
