Based on Edwin Abbott’s classic, mind-bending 1884 mathematical novella, this animated film dramatizes the conflicts, hopes and fates of a community of geometric characters living in a two-dimensional world. When a young geometric figure decides to “think outside the box” (in a world where such thought is forbidden), her life is threatened and it is up to her grandfather to save her life.

This film is included in the compilation MathFilm 2008 DVD.
