SINOPSYS

In an alternate 1982, a giant extraterrestrial spaceship arrives at Earth and hovers over the South African city of Johannesburg. A human investigation team finds over one million malnourished aliens (derogatorily called “Prawns”) inside, and the South African government relocates them to a terrestrial camp called District 9. However, over the years it turns into a slum, and locals from Earth often complain that the aliens are filthy, ignorant lawbreakers who bleed resources from humans.
