The movie starting with a monolog:
It's like we were doomed to destroy our planet.
Some say it was because of the increasing pollution. I just call it human nature.
A few scientists predicted what would happen.
They started working on a power station that could be sent into space
to harvest geothermal energy from other planets.
But it was too late. People would start dying in their sleep... suffocating in the streets,
the blood in their veins turning black.

"An unexpected change in atmosphere composition," they said.
To me it was just our planet desperately
trying to survive by kicking us out.
So one day, a hundred ships
flew off into the sky
It was the Exodus mission.
They turned the power station into a colony,
like a lifeboat floating above Jupiter's volcanic moon,
also known as…

The plot on the website is BS.
What I find interesting in the movie:
Change in the atmosphere; missing populations (dead or left the earth); empty cities; and at the end: a new generation...

It is not a 5* movie but good.
The big mistake they made the usage of internal combustion engines where oxygen level is extremely low.
