Soulful and suspenseful, this thrilling love story delves into the lives of three men – one each from the past, present, and future – who are separated by time and space, but united by purpose. Each of them, for different reasons, in different ways, desperately is in pursuit of eternity with their love.
A conquistador in Mayan country searches for the tree of life to free his captive queen; Tommy, a modern-day medical researcher, working with various trees, desperately attempts to find a medical breakthrough that will save the life of his cancer-stricken wife, Izzi; a space traveler, traveling with an aged tree encapsulated within a bubble, moves toward a dying star that's wrapped in a nebula; he seeks eternity with his love. The stories intersect and parallel; the quests fail and succeed.
