2057 AD: On a mysterious alien planet, three NASA astronauts discover the human descendents of a lost Asian civilization.

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.

Did You Know?


The film's backstory is influenced by Erich von Daniken's theories of "ancient astronauts," which claim that ancient humans had access to extraterrestrial travel. The film (fictitiously) suggests that thousands of years ago, an advanced Asian civilization from Earth seeded a human population on what is now Sheenyana's planet (presumably in the Alpha Centauri star system, based on a comment by Dr. Hanson that they have traveled just over four light years). While no other films are currently slated, Hughes has conceived the "Food for the Gods" storyline as merely the first chapter of a expanding saga, in which Sheenyana's trials would continue in an outlined trilogy spanning twenty years of searching for her people's incredible interstellar origins and discovering their ultimate and surprising future in "City for the Gods" and "Destiny for the Gods."

Sheenyana: [Sheenyana is looking at a far away mountain through Richard's high-tech binoculars.] means 'Sees Far.' Now I have seen farther than any of my people. Does that make me a god?
Lt. Richard O'Conner: Only if your dagger makes you a god over an animal that you skin. It's a tool, Sheenyana. Nothing more.
Sheenyana: [disturbed, Sheenyana turns and draws her dagger, staring at it.] My dagger does make me god over animal I skin. Why are you here?
