The true story of earth and sky


A lyrical allegory set in the not-too-distant future, THE TRUE STORY OF EARTH AND SKY follows JONAS a low-level sever technician working in the Central Baltic power hub, who dreams of some intangible “more.”

Jonas grew up in a world where a united mankind has been fending off an alien invasion outside the Earth’s atmosphere for twenty years. Life his hard, but everyone does their part to support the war effort – except for fringed radicals who claim that the invasion is a hoax to control the masses.

His life turns upside down when he is taken hostage by a fringe terrorist while trying to protect his would-be fiancé. His captivity in the archaic forest bunkers turns his world upside down. He suddenly feels exposed to the contradictions and “lies” of his society.
