a retro-futuristic comedy
Moonshot tells the story of Nova, a homeless 80's relic whose violent life on the streets has hardened her into a lethal physical asset. But survival is a full-time job and she's had enough of it. When she meets Alan, an engineer working for a lunar launch company, the two hatch a risky plan to get her off to the Moon before her cutthroat past can catch up with her.
Channeling the neon environments and larger-than-life characters of sci-fi films of yesteryear, Moonshot is set in the near future as it might have been imagined in the 1980s, the nostalgic setting reminding us that as much as we try to project how things will turn out, we are often hilariously wrong.
