2003 | It’s all about Love

In the year 2021, the world seems to have become a very strange place: an unexplained ailment is causing people to drop dead in the streets of New York, ice storms and floods strike major cities without notice, summer is marked by periodic snowfalls, and a strange hole has appeared in the Ugandan sky that causes people to loose the grip of gravity and drift off into space. In the midst of all this, internationally known figure skater Elena is getting a divorce from her husband John. John soon learns that Elena and her staff have a secret.
