But Dr. Walstien is not alone in this discovery. A billionaire, Pedro Preer, has also discovered the artifacts secrets which led him to build a giant transforming robot from the ancient plans. His efforts lead him to discover the need for a “special” power source.

Meanwhile, after a tragic automobile accident in which he believes both his wife and daughter are killed, Max Pastier, an Air Force pilot, is himself tested while flying a mission in his F-35. Without explanation the aircraft goes into an uncontrollable spin. But some how… Max survives.

After his accident, we see that Max ends up wandering the streets in the City of Puerto Madryn. “Coincidentally”, this is the same place where Dr. Walstein is now working.

While conversing in the streets in a “chance” meeting with Max,in which both Walstien and Max are attacked, Dr. Walstien notices Max’s incredible reflexes, power and speed. Dr. Walstein gets a hunch that Max might be the one person who could fly the prototype Mecha that Walstien was now developing for Pedro Preer. But Max refuses the Dr’s invitation.

Upon hearing the Dr’s story, Pedro Preer manages to find Max’s daughter who is still alive living in an orphanage. This time, with Daughter in tow, Preer located Max and reunites them. In gratitude, and realizing he now has his daughter to take care of, Max accepts Peer’s job offer to work with Dr. Walstien. During the trial phases of the aircrafts development Dr. Walstien and Max develop a close friendship.

Dr. Walstien explains to Max his discovery in combining 6 ancient manuscripts together to create a holographic projection revealing Tesla’s theory regarding “Virtual Energy” was correct. Testing revealed that Max’s virtual energy readings were off the charts which Weinstein theorized would allow Max to properly operate the prototype mecha.

At last the prototype mecha was ready for testing. But when Max started the mecha up, Peers men ordered him out of the craft at gunpoint.

Shortly thereafter explosions could be see and GIANTS filled the sky. An explosion takes out Peer’s guards and Max climbs aboard the Mecha and takes off. he locates there Giants and begins to defend the planet, But there are just to many for Max to defeat. Dr. Walstien radio’s coordinates where Max should dispose of the three Giants that attacked him. The coordinates are located in deep space.

Max heads to the coordinates with three Giants in tow… its the mouth of a wormhole. He uses the last of his “virtual energy” to escape the wormholes grasp, but succumbs and is frozen in space.

Twenty-Five years later Max passes near a distant star and is unfrozen. His vital energy restored through rest roars the prototype Mecha back to life. He receives a radio message… its Dr. Walstien… older and ragged now… he gives Max the coordinates to come home! But 25 years have passed. The world is in ruins. Giants rule the planet. Only a small group of Resistance bands have kept the human race alive and one of the is commanded by Max’s now 26 year old daughter… Mai Pastier.

When Max returns to the coordinates provided by Dr. Walstien, he unknowingly comes into contact with his daughter’ Maia’s squadron fighting battling several Giants.
