The film takes place on a planet where the longitude of a day is calculated not by hours, as on Earth , but by millennia. As a result of this, generations living in the “eternal” day perceive the tales of the night as fairy tales. However, the moment of dusk, and after them the night, is getting closer and the danger threatening civilization, only a handful of scientists realize. Other inhabitants of the planet either do not believe in this, or believe that the onset of darkness means the end of the world .
