Humans always wondered about the question, whether or not we are alone? Finally, we have the answer, and it’s not what we hopped for at all. One day, swarms of giant robots, invaded our skies. They send a messenger, and the message, is clear. We have to show the giants, why they should spare us. Why humans should continue their existence. They asked us to show our humanity, to them, if we fail, it’s complete destruction we will face. Our first response of course, War. A man, Josh Myron, think different. He takes it upon himself, to protect the messenger, and to make the leaders, comply with the demands. Clearly we are no match for them. As the giants are tilting the earth’s axis, making all our efforts useless.

A Thrilling Sci-Fi, with a very moralistic message. Or maybe, a call to reconsider the way we are living. Maybe, we need to stop, and think of our actions, if we really want this earth to survive us.
