But Álex, still traumatized by the ghosts of his own past, decides some days later after to meet Helena break all rules and reveal her the truth: that she is part of a secret experiment to test the effects in the human body of an elongated space travel, and that she was offered by her fathers as well another babies, in the hope to runaway from a progressively more polluted and radioactive planet Earth. Escaping from the fake space pod, Helena exits to the world and discovering it at the side of Álex, being both prosecuted by Hugo, director of the project, who searches the way to keep all project in secret.

You know what that means,


That with a little luck we'll see

the first ships take off in 20 or 30 years.

With a little luck and some care

we'll probably still be alive

and see it with our own eyes.

I thought you'd be more excited.

I am excited, Hugo.

You don't look it.

What's wrong?

I don't now.


We've never wondered about

the passengers in the simulators...

All the time.

That's why we have the data

from their biowitnesses.

But those are numbers.

Yes, numbers. The most precise

language that exists.

- But we're talking about something else.

- What?

We're talking about people.

We've always talked about people.

But not about ten people.

We're talking about 8 billion people.

Alex, I've dedicated

half of my life

to this project.

And although you've only been

with us for 5 years,

I know this is just as important

to you as it is to me.

Pick up the Orbit 10 dossier,

go home and get some rest.

You have only one simulator left.

When you've closed that last door,

you'll see everything differently.


The Ministry of the Environment

announces that next week

it will create more artificial storms

in all the northern districts of the city.

They will be nocturnal rains that will

occur every Wednesday next month.

Temperatures tomorrow...

Why don't you take this

to Monica?

I don't think she'll like it.

Come by the 99 one of these nights.

We miss you, man.

The test results came in yesterday.

Come by the clinic anytime

to pick them up.

Why don't you save me the trip?

Your bones are fine, the analytics too.

You have radiation in your body

but within normal parameters.

You shouldn't have entered the simulators,

but you're a lucky bastard.

Why don't you come over

for dinner tonight?

- Monica will be happy to see you.
