Beginning in the year 2030 AD, a black hole comes hurtling towards the Earth. Rajaraja Cholan, a former ruler of an ancient, powerful empire in India, learned of a prophecy that foretold the apocalypse. Springing into action, he declares his son, Rajendra Cholan, to take the throne of the Chola Dynasty and to enlist the help of hundreds of the kingdom’s most trusted people to undertake a 1000-year exile. During their exile, the king and his trusted subjects worked on building a spaceship beneath the Indian Ocean for the dynasty’s survival of the fast-approaching black hole. With one millennium to prepare, the king and his men felt they must have a fighting chance at succeeding in their mission.
Finally, in the year 2030 AD, the American president, and other world leaders are meeting in the White House to rally forces and the greatest minds in modern science for answers. Rajaraja, along with his most trusted advisor, Agasthiyar, makes their appearance in the war room to inform the contemporary world leaders of the provisions that have been created. As humanity prepares to flee Earth, a traitor attempts to kill Rajaraja. Unable to trust his friends, and with humanity’s existence hanging in the balance, Rajaraja must stop the traitor before they can kill him and doom humanity to the black hole.
