Sebastian (Asa Butterfield) is a sixteen-year-old who has spent most of his life with his Nana (Ellen Burstyn) in their geodesic dome home, a tourist attraction where she raises him on the futurist teachings of her former mentor Buckminster Fuller in hopes that one day Sebastian will carry Fuller’s torch and make the world a better place.
But when illness sidelines Nana, Sebastian begins sneaking around with Jared (Alex Wolff), a chain-smoking, punk-obsessed sixteen-year-old with a heart transplant who lives in the suburbs with his Bible-banging single father, Alan (Nick Offerman), and teenage sister Meredith (Maude Apatow). Sebastian and Jared form a punk band and with his Nana’s dreams, his first real friendship, and a church talent show at stake, Sebastian must decide if he wants to become the next Buckminster Fuller, the next Sid Vicious, or something else entirely.
THE HOUSE OF TOMORROW is produced by Tarik Karam, Danielle Renfrew Behrens, and Superlative Films in association with Water’s End Productions. Ellen Burstyn and Nick Offerman serve as executive producers along with Tom Dolby, Bill & Ruth Ann Harnisch, Donna & Kevin Gruneich, and Patty Quillin. The film was supported by the Sundance Institute and the Tribeca Film Institute Sloan Filmmaker Fund.
