Storyline

2057 AD: On a mysterious alien planet, three NASA astronauts discover the human descendents of a lost Asian civilization. Sheenyana (Yvette Lu), a beautiful mystic warrior, engages in a passionate, forbidden affair with Lt. Richard O'Conner (Danny Dorosh). Yet despite her lover's goodness, Sheenyana's psychic visions foretell a coming danger from Earth. When her manipulative rival, Princess Xionko (Beverly Wu), plots to steal American weapons and expose their affair, it nearly costs the princess her life--sparking an intercultural incident that will force Sheenyana before her king (Taka Hiro) to choose between the destiny of her people and the life of the man she loves. Written by H. Scott Hughes, writer/director

Trivia

Lead actress Yvette Lu and director H. Scott Hughes (both classically trained musicians) pulled double-duty as the film's two co-composers. In addition to scoring, Lu is the lead vocalist on the soundtrack, with harmony provided by her co-star, actress/singer Beverly Wu (Princess Xionko). They are accompanied by erhu master Xu Qian of the University of British Columbia's Asian music studies department. The ancient two-stringed erhu is often referred to as the "Chinese violin."
