An Earth disaster is unfolding. The crew of the space station Rubikon, Hannah, Gavin and Dimitri, must decide between risking their lives to get home and search for survivors or staying safe in the station’s sophisticated algae symbiosis system, which makes them completely self-sufficient.
RUBIKON is a science-fiction disaster film directed by Magdalena Lauritsch. It combines a social commentary and a moral dilemma in its captivating realisation. Julia Franz Richter (UNDINE), George Blagden (VIKINGS) and Mark Ivanir (THE GOOD SHEPHERD) perform in the leading roles.
