Categories: [ TV/Cinema ]



In 2018, two Americans land on the dark side of the Moon, officially in an attempt to promote the reelection of the president, and unofficially to search for helium 3. They discover a large industrial complex, built by the Nazis who had fled Earth in 1945. One of the astronauts is killed, but the second one, James Washington, is taken prisoner. There he meets Renate Richter, the daughter of the local mad scientist. Renate's father finds out that Washington's mobile phone is way more powerful than their computer, and is exactly what they need to power the Götterdämmerung, a gigantic space ship meant to take over the Earth. Renate is kind, has a naive understanding of the Nazi ideology, and she wants to help Washington return to Earth. Following her advice, the latter pretends to have succombed to his brainwahsing, and accompanies Klaus Adler, who wants to become the next Führer as soon as possible. Upon their arrival in New York, Adler and Renate accidentally meet the PR agent of the president who sees in them a possibility for getting the president reelected, promoting the positive aspects of Nazi ideology. After a few months, the Führer arrives on Earth and confronts Adler, having discovered his plan, but gets killed. The space-Zeppelin fleet that has been following him however starts launching an attack on New York. Adler returns meanshile to the Moon with a load of mobile phones for powering the Götterdämmerung. The president of the USA is thrilled by the war, which should ensure her reelection. At the UN, she discusses the space attack, and it turns out that every nation has weapons in their spacecrafts (except Finland) ; their joint armada defeats the Zeppelins, then bombs the Moon base and turns to the Götterdämmerung. Meanwhile, Renate and Washington have flown back to the Moon as well and sabotage the huge ship, killing Adler in the process. Renate and Washington decide to stay on the Moon, re-educating the locals to teach them about tolerance, while the nations of Earth fight each other for the control of the reserves of helium 3 from the Moon.
