The Midnight Sky Plot: What is it About?
‘The Midnight Sky’ introduces us to an ambitious scientist named Augustine Lofthouse, who is studying possible planets that can house the human race. However, he is unable to connect or forge bonds with his fellow mates. Fast forward to three decades later and a catastrophic event destroys almost the entire earth. The disaster wipes out a huge chunk of the population with powerful radiation. Augustine is now working in the Arctic Circle and he does not wish to leave his base since he knows that he will die soon because of his cancer.
He wants to communicate with space missions, hoping to warn them about the crisis on Earth. However, almost all of the space stations have been dismantled. Only one spacecraft Æther, is headed toward Earth from Jupiter after having scanned a habitable site on the moon. One day, Augustine comes across a young girl named Iris in the station. They start to develop a close bond and journey together to another base, in the search of an antenna that would be powerful enough to contact Æther. Along the way, they face multiple obstacles, which make their relationship even stronger. Check out the trailer below.
