In the year 2067, earth is on the verge of collapse.After years of doing too little to reverse climate change, humans are paying a terrible price – forests, plants and wildlife are gone, and soon humans will be too, due to the dramatic decline in available oxygen. In this grey, dying world, the synthetic oxygen people breathe through masks has begun to make them sick. With no cure in sight, the only place humanity can look for help is to the future, in the hope someone is still alive and can tell them how to save the planet. Chronicorp, the world’s leading supplier of oxygen, has spearheaded that project.
One day, they receive a message from 400 years in the future: “Send Ethan Whyte”.
Ethan is a utility worker at Chronicorp; seemingly a nobody. But the future asked for him, and the people in charge of this project aren’t going to disappoint their saviors. Ethan is defiant at first, but encouragement from Jude, his surrogate big brother, and promises from Chronicorp that they will help Ethan’s sick wife convince him. Ethan barrels into the future as humanity’s last hope. He arrives into a new world – lush, green, and… alone. Ethan was led to believe that the future would give him answers, but there are only more questions, most notably: if he’s the only one here, who sent that message? An Arcadia, Futurism and Kojo Entertainment production.
