Synopsis

Set 100 years in the future, "L5: First City In Space" follows a seven-year-old girl named Chieko as she discovers the wonders of the city in which she lives with her father and mother--from self-contained farms and gardens to laboratories and factories; from schools and playgrounds to a state-of-the-art docking bay for space ships and probes. In flashback, Chieko recounts the earliest days of the space city and describes the perilous quest to capture a new water supply for its expanding population. Chieko relates the story of her grandfather, the city's chief scientist, and how he launched a plan to obtain water from a planet passing the planet Jupiter. What follows is the recreation of her father's treacherous journey across the vast solar system to reroute the comet and then return safely to L5.
