Sometime in the future, a government program to save the population of an unnamed, dying planet in a dying universe is furiously underway. The sun is in his final days; the planets are scorched and have abandoned hope. The few remaining souls live primarily in bunkers and have resorted to cannibalism. Destruction looms imminent.
In a race against the clock, scientist-generated baby universes are being placed in the care of lonely spinsters in the hope that one might nurture to maturity a savior—a baby universe capable of birthing a planet that can support the relocation of the entire population. This captivating fable—inspired by real-life scientific events and theory—features 30 puppets, animation, a space-age score, and an irresistible robot based on Stephen Hawking.
