It’s the year 2020. In the aftermath of a global pandemic, 10 Gen Zs gather in the middle of a field of wildflowers, gazing with hope toward interstellar space.
10 beautiful misfits, whose hearts need mending.Meanwhile, in a galaxy far, far away the Golden Record sent into space aboard 1977s Voyager Mission has landed in the expert hands of H.O.P.E Inc. of the planet Makemake.
Through a series of incredibly unreal events, Kate and her friends discover the strength they each have within their own hearts, and with a little help from another galaxy, start rebuilding and beginning again.

Kate leaves Kenny.
