The sun was dying out, people all around the world built giant planet thrusters to move Earth out of its orbit and to sail Earth to a new star system.

Chinese movie industry had contacted some famous directors: James Cameron, Luc Besson, Alfonso... to name a few. All rejected the proposal. The job eventually landed on a not-so-famous director Frant Gwo, who was most passionate about the original story. Gwo and his colleagues wrote an outline of 25,000 words, which was way above normal.

Each character you see in the film has detail background and stories.
