The protagonists of this sci-fi comedy, first-class scientists and Nobel laureates wish to leave our planet driven by consumerism and start a new life in a new world. They know technology exists for this to be possible. But they are pretty naïve in thinking they can outsmart the ruling power of wealth. Unfortunately, reason and money rarely go hand in hand.
