A space-ship is lost in space, conveying a small team of scientists who no longer know, probably due to too long a cr to make. Most such hypotheses surpass understanding, and often provoke lively discussions, leading to a climax over a controversial “anthropic principle”, which attempts to explain the evolution of the universe through that of thought which is capable of observing it.

The film is made up of fourteen episodes, echoing the first science-fiction series, in which almost every one corresponds to a cosmological hypotheses, which may tease the mind, but is perfectly scientific. In other words, fourteen 'stations' on which to meditate, which make up a new "way of the cross", as there's a crucified character in the story, the thinking being, abandoned by God, yielde unbearable ending of the knowledge.
