Earth's Wild Ride

Set on the surface of the Moon in the year 2081, a grandfather and his grandchildren observe a solar eclipse.

They follow the Moon's shadow as it moves from the Atlantic to Asia - passing through France, Sicily, Turkey and ending in the Persian Gulf.

Conversation leads to contrasts between the Moon, the only home the grandchildren know, and the Earth, where the grandfather spent most of his life.

While learning about eclipses, the Ice Age, the dinosaur extinction, Earth's water cycle and differences between the Earth and the Moon; the audience is also taken on a rollercoaster-like ride through hot flowing lava and a raging river canyon

The film ends with the message that 'home is where your family lives'.
