If the entire history of the planet were condensed in a single year, do you know exactly when the modern man would appear on the surface of Earth? On December 31, 15 minutes before midnight! Watching the documentary “The History of the Earth in 10 minutes” embracing the second person singular, 24 hours after the Big Bang that resulted in the creation of the first person plural. As the history of Earth unfolds before their eyes, the protagonist cannot help wondering about the love affair that started to arise. Then the history of the earth intertwines with the history of Love and Homo Sapiens seeks a kind of love with renewable energy sources or at least a kind of love that brings forth poems as fossils.
