Downsizing – In the near future, Paul and Audrey Safranek are a married couple in Omaha with financial issues. At a high school reunion, they encounter Dave and Carol Johnson, who have “downsized,” an irreversible process invented 15 years earlier that involves shrinking humans to a height of five inches. While the inventors advocate that downsizing is environmentally friendly through the reduction of waste, Dave argues its benefits extend far beyond that, and improve one’s life through the increase in value of their money. Exploring the possibilities of downsizing, Paul and Audrey agree to undergo the process and move in to Leisureland, one of the most popular communities for small individuals. After undergoing downsizing, Paul receives a call from Audrey, saying that she was unable to go through the procedure and opting out at the last minute, and will be leaving him.
