A sequel to 1986’s Highlander, Highlander II: The Quickening is set in the year 2024 where the world is protected from solar radiation by the Shield, an artificial ozone layer that has fallen under the control of a corrupt corporation. Prior to the main events of the film, Earth’s natural ozone layer was completely depleted in the late ‘90s, resulting in the deaths of millions of humans.

Though the real world’s ozone layer has yet to completely heal, scientists recently observed that it has slowly been recovering, thanks to the continued efforts and partnerships of various governments across the world.
