In the ensuing battle, Shu finds himself sucked into a time warp that drags him 5 billion years into the future - to a world that is more like a battlefield than a place to live. Over the course of the millennias the sun has expanded and the cooling waters that Shu so loved have vanished. Now in this desolate land, the human race must fight to survive under the cruel leadership of a few. And one of those leaders, General Hamod of Hellywood, thinks he knows Lala-Ru secret: the link to a new water source. And he'll do anything he has to to have it.
