       Additional Information  
     
      It is 2012. At a SETI observatory in the Atacama Desert, astronomers scanning the galaxy for signs of intelligent life are stunned to receive a touching message from another planet. Sornea Kara, a female from the planet Sabasa, has sent the message to Earth in the hope that humanity can learn from the experiences of her ancient civilisation. The message inspires the close-knit team of researchers, and a unique correspondence begins, offering startling insights into the parallels between the two planets' histories. Enchanted and alarmed by the wisdom of the writer, gruff but good-hearted astronomer Walter Strictman decides to bring the Sabasan message to Washington D.C., in a bid to call attention to the need for urgent action on the wars and inequalities threatening mankind. Battling against cynicism and indifference, Walter struggles to keep faith in humanity's future. Can he persuade those in power to make the changes necessary to sustain life on Earth - or is it already too late? More than just a moving and thought-provoking story, Sabasa, Fourth Planet from the Sunstar issues a challenge to all of us to take a fresh look at the future of the world we've been gifted with.
