Director Alexander Payne sets Downsizing in his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska. In the not-so-distant future, human beings experience an unprecedented solution to the excessive energy consumption that has impoverished the planet: a cutting edge reduction procedure able to temporarily reduce the size of a man of about one-eighth, thus allowing him to save the resources available.
A married couple (Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig), in a marital crisis, decides to undergo the trial with the hope of a better life, but when his wife pulls back at the last moment, the man has only to join a small community of its peers and face the difficulties arising from the new measures alone.
