During the Allied invasion of Europe in 1944 (during World War II), for a few moments, all radio communications were disturbed, and this could have caused a catastrophe that would eliminate the military operations that had begun to come their way. No one knew the cause of this disturbance until several years later, as this disturbance was attributed to an explosion that occurred in a star cluster called "Andromeda", knowing that this group is several million light-years away from our planet. there is always a type of catastrophic earthquakes due to certain changes occurring on the surface of the sun. The more we learn about the world, the more we realize that we cannot be masters of our destinies. Even assuming the greatest possible progress in science, the amount of factors that will be under our control is worth nothing compared to the vast amount of factors beyond this control. The size of a person does not correspond to the size of this vast universe, and the age of all humanity is not a unit of measurement for what is happening in this universe in terms of events, in 2019 the same thing happened, the spread of the Coronavirus, the filmmakers aim to help people accept this idea, without feeling overwhelmed. They are always in danger, or reflecting on their psyche, from a feeling of pessimism, rebellion, despair, or indifference.
