They don’t make art. They make cadavers.
After a devastating attack from distant space leaves a large portion of Earth’s population in terror and ruin, a band of children is groomed into a unit of perfect soldiers sent to the distant, hostile planet to avert another horrific attack. But when they arrive, they discover dark secrets that Earth governments would prefer remain secret…
In the wake of the energy beam that struck the Earth, instantly killing a sixth of the world population, a Serbian scientist named Jsana Juric and a Japanese army colonel named Takeshi Nakamura gathers a group of orphaned children who survived the disaster to become lethal soldiers trained to invade the hostile planet in hopes of preventing a repeat attack. Divided into teams, the children get to know each other and begin to understand that surviving the training will itself be a brutal test. Lives are sacrificed and difficult lessons are learned, all in the interest of turning children into hardened killing machines. One such impressionable child is Jonas . . .
Meanwhile, in a parallel storyline set in the future, a ground invasion force reaches the alien planet from which the energy beam supposedly originated. Before setting foot on the planet, every soldier receives a vaccine to combat the deadly radiation on the planet, a course that must be repeated every day. The battles are tough, and the human forces suffer massive casualties until a team of five soldiers appears and makes short work of the aliens. These five heroes are Jonas and his companions — the “Orphans.”
The Orphans don’t make art. They make cadavers. Through their pain and suffering, they create death and destruction. But in the end, their ultimate goal is to save humanity from another devastating attack.
