A small group of town residents have to band together after a devastating ground invasion. As they struggle to survive, they realize they must stay one step ahead of their attackers, and work together for a chance to strike back.
Earth 2245: 5 people are sent to a faraway planet to collect the mineral Stardust, which will be used to revive the dying Sun and save Earth. The spaceship also has a Dawnseeker, a killer of humans, that escapes upon reaching destination.
The film is set in a post-apocalyptic world in which civilisation has crumbled. A massive electromagnetic pulse has killed all children on the planet with the exception of Molly (Billie Rutherford), the daughter of Jake Slater (Jake Ryan).
A documentary investigation on the rarest and most controversial French movie in the history of early cinema: a fascinating, lost and dangerous short film which causes violent reactions to those who watch it.
Can you keep a secret? I haven't heard anyone for a long time until they arrived. They came for help and they broke the rules. I tried to warn them but it was too late. Little did they know. The party is over. Who will survive?

Near the beginning of the film, a CTA Green Line train is seen on the elevated tracks. The train clearly consists of the newer 5000-series cars, which did not exist until 2011 and did not enter service on the Green Line until 2012. The film is supposedly set in 1989 when the 2000-series cars (four generations earlier than the 5000-series) would still be exclusively in use on this line.
Furthermore, although the "Green Line" markings are clearly visible on each car, the CTA did not assign color to each line until 1995, so this line would have been known as the Englewood/Jackson Park branch in 1989, not the Green Line as depicted in the film. See more »
I don't normally like biopics of living subjects as I think you have to let time pass to truly measure a historical figure, but this is not a movie about Barack and Michelle Obama, the president and first lady, it is about a pair of young unknown young professionals making a go of it in Chicago and trying to squeeze in romance while trying to climb the corporate ladder. Like them or hate them, it was hard to not identify with some of the awkwardness that is typical of first dates and find humor in some of the situations that we have all found ourselves in - except this is the future president. It was great seeing them at the beginning. I am not sure they should have had the scene of them standing close to a flaming trash barrel in the winter in Chicago warming their hands over the copies of the constitution and American flags they kept tossing into the flames as some people might get the wrong idea. I also think maybe they should have not had the future president lighting up the blunts as he walked on water and tossed rotten tomatoes at the Israeli consulate. The part of Obama explaining away the actions of the Islamo fascists in Iran was also enlightening however. Great movie!
