When a mysterious object the size of a small moon appears in Earth orbit, the human race is thrown into disarray. Bizarre changes begin to occur, with many people manifesting strange, powerful mutations. When the infrastructure collapses completely it's left to a small, rag-tag group of strangers, gathered together by an alien entity that may or may not be an ancient Indian god, to escape from a crumbling Earth and set off for the stars on a mission to save the future of the human race...
