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.

Trivia

Writer/director H. Scott Hughes based his screenplay (co-written by Phillip Matte) on a short story by his mother, sci-fi/mystery author Patricia C. Hughes, best known for her "Granny Grace" series published in Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine in the late 90's. The short story's title was also "Food for the Gods." Mrs. Hughes personally approved her son's choice of Chinese-Canadian actress Yvette Lu to portray the protagonist she created. See more »
