Former child queen Elida has been on the run since her mother was shot and killed by Commander Lazaro, the man responsible for bringing down their empire.
A highly skilled fighter, Elida (Adriyan Rae) has been living in hiding and making ends meet as a scavenger while the unhinged Lazaro (Paul du Toit) obsesses over tracking her down.
When Elida’s old frenemy Isaac (Tim Rozon) shows up with news that her mother is still alive, it takes the help of the technically savvy and optimistic Amae (Alex McGregor) to escape Lazaro’s army and begin the rescue mission across the galaxy.
To save her mother the team must break into the heavily guarded region of space where Elida once ruled, and an encounter with a group loyal to her former throne forces her to finally stop running and face her past as a child queen.
Cannibalistic aliens, dangerous planets, shootouts, karaoke, and parking tickets complicate the journey further, and they don’t have long before the increasingly deranged Lazaro catches up to them.
