    Humankind has a problem. The climatic change has struck Earth with full force. The majority of wild animals has gone extinct, the reserves of oil, coal and gas have run dry. Worse still, a red moon appeared in the sky that keeps getting dangerously closer and poses a collision threat. A mysterious astronaut Paul W.R. (Hugo Becker) is sent on a rescue mission with the goal to destroy the celestial body. But Paul literally vanishes into thin air just a few hours prior to the launch. Where did he go? But most importantly – why? The ambitious, visually captivating debut of director and screenwriter Romain Quirot will make you ponder death and redemption, and proves that the French can really make great sci-fi.
