Storyline

The whole Moon has been divided into 5 zones (related to Earthen countries), and there is one monopoly consortium which sells the oxygen to everyone. Each zone is focused on extracting precious Helium-3. The lunar-suits provide self-gravity, and they create their own invisible helmet to contain the oxygen. The North-American zone is under the control of an Army General, and the civil workers are Earthen convicts. One of those criminals finds what seems to be a red lunar-flower with blue roots in the site of an inspection, on Moon surface. Few seconds after he touches that flower, there is a huge explosion in a nearby crater which began a moon-quake that swallows the convict and others.

Unfinished

This would be a poor first episode of a new TV series but they are calling it a movie?! How can this be considered a movie if it ends suddenly and unexpectedly?

The story line is confusing and unfinished! The odd moments supposedly humorous are appalling, and the love in the air scenes seem written by a child. The only positive side is the exploration of the moon as a scenery but we are let down by everything else.

As it is (without a sequel that would have to be a great one to make sense of all of this) I don't think it is worth watching.
