Among the few who remain in the town, There are fellow smugglers who mock Misha. Eva, a young woman who works at the only tavern remaining open, protects Misha and seeks to enter the Zone with help of Misha in the search for her long missing son Gabriel. There are some rumours that dead people appeared alive in the Zone if they have been truly loved and missed.

He meets Eva at the tavern and reveals his quest to her. They both join Misha on his journey into the Zone despite this being a dangerous task. Confronting their journey are the challenges of passing through the highly secured area that is patrolled by drones which kill any trespassers.
According to rumours the Zone is protecting itself from those who are not chosen; only true believers are granted safe passage.
Their journey to the Zone is a chain of mysterious events. Eventually the Zone grants their wishes but not in the exact way they have expected.

"Only Love and Memories"

Universe Zone is a mystical post-apocalyptic drama that explores the power of love and memory in a world torn apart by conflicting beliefs. Through an adventurous and soulful motion-picture, it offers a resolution to the debates between religion, spirituality, and science. Love emerges as the ultimate answer to disbelief, and the story's ultimate message is that, no matter what path we take, love unites us all. With its soulful and poetic tone, adventurous and entertaining plot, art-house drama, and mysterious elements, Universe Zone embodies my personal philosophy that dreams can come true. It is a prophetic tale of miracles and a testament to the enduring power of love as a force for healing and reconciliation in even the most trying times.
