This story aspires to the future of humanity by looking at human civilization from the perspective of 3.8 billion years of the evolution of life on earth. From amoebas, amphibians, quadrupeds, apes, monkeys, to humans... the evolution of life is depicted through pantomime. The human race, which appeared at the end of evolution, shifted to a life of gathering and hunting.
Starting with the "forbidden fruit", the wisdom of mankind evolved technology, which in turn evolved weapons one after another. Eventually, people started to take each other's weapons, kill each other, and finally, the atomic bomb was dropped.

By looking at humanity from the perspective of the evolution of life, this film depicts the "animalistic savagery" that humanity has yet to overcome.

 The evolution of mankind has always been accompanied by the evolution of technology and the accompanying evolution of weapons. Today, humanity is on the verge of extinction due to new "forbidden fruits" such as nuclear weapons, genetic engineering, and artificial intelligence. Hacking, fake news, unmanned drones, bio-terrorism, etc. The dystopian world depicted in science fiction movies such as "The Matrix" is no longer the stuff of fantasy.

Will humanity repeat the same mistakes, or will we be able to overcome our karma and open a new era of freedom and peace?
