In the year 2075, mankind is plagued by a lack of food and water after the Earth is practically turned into a desert planet. The key to saving humanity may lie in an abandoned Korean research base on the moon.


An elite team is sent to the moon to find the clues to save the planet. The team includes soldier Han Yoon-Jae (Gong Yoo) and astrobiologist Song Ji-an (Bae Doo-na) who must unravel the mysteries surrounding the abandoned base.

Lee Joon, who plays Ryu Tae-seok, makes his return to acting with the series. This is his first role since he was discharged from the army after finishing his mandatory military service in 2019.
