Nemo Nobody leads an ordinary existence at his wife's side, Elise, and their 3 children, until the day when reality skids and he wakes up as an old man in the year 2092. At 120, Mr. Nobody is both the oldest man in the world and the last mortal of a new mankind where nobody dies anymore. But that doesn't seem to interest or bother him very much.
