The set up for Elysium is fairly simple, here's the official run down:

Set in the year 2159, where the very wealthy live on a man-made space station while the rest of the population resides on a ruined Earth, a man takes on a mission that could bring equality to the polarized worlds.

Elysium will hit theaters on August 9th, 2013.
