Since the dawn of time, the Moon plays a fundamental role in biological life: it acts like the pendulum of the terrestrial clock, dictating its rhythm to everything alive. As a universal symbol and a source of fascination, the Moon is present in every civilisation, through myths, legends and dreams. 

The film will take us on a scientific odyssey revisiting the incredibly subtle clockwork linking the Moon to the Earth. In a perfect balance with the sun, Moon's attraction enabled life to bloom on our blue planet. It will also take viewers on a journey across the ages, cultures and religions revealing the fascination and powerful source of inspiration provided by this planet.
