Synopsis: When America attempts to "purify" earth to maintain its own dominance, it sparks a worldwide nuclear holocaust. Teen friends Jessil and Soraj are among the few survivors. They escaped on a cruiser that now orbits the planet and is designed to regenerate the earth's ecosystem. But when Jessil discovers a message indicating her father may have survived the holocaust back on earth, she’s determined to rescue him immediately with Soraj's help. Can they succeed even though the planet they return to is very different from the one they left—and that their success could mean failure for the regeneration process?
