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

The fictional "Kyontawa" language, heard during subtitled dialog and music sung throughout the film, was created specifically for "Food for the Gods." Loosely based on Japanese and other Asian language influences, it is a carefully planned grammatical structure with internal consistency. The dialog and lyrics were originally written in English, then later translated into the crafted language - each word with a very specific meaning. See more »
