2056. A cloud of toxic pollution has swallowed the earth, killing countless people. The nations of the world have dissolved, with all power now in the hands of a few giant corporations. The rich retreat to sealed biodomes while the poor suffocate and starve. On the Rubikon space station, Hannah (Julia Franz Richter), Gavin (George Blagden) and Dimitri (Mark Ivanir) weigh in on the fate of the planet’s survivors. Should these crew members risk their own lives on a surface rescue mission, or ignore the old world to build a new one of safety and solitude, living off the sophisticated algae symbiosis system of the station ? Against the vast web of the cosmos, three people with differing worldviews debate their moral responsibility to the species, while struggling with the timely agony of isolation.
