“Emma has always felt different from anyone else in Middelbo – a small Danish town that became world-famous when it was said that a meteor entered the atmosphere and crashed into it 17 years earlier. Now, Middelbo is no longer what it has been, and the question is whether it has ever been what it pretends to be at all?
“When Emma accidentally discovers that the whole story of the meteor is a lie, a dangerous and improbable truth about the sleepy town reveals itself – something that is far more perilous and incredible than she could have ever imagined. Was it a meteor that hit the little town 17 years ago or was it something far more powerful? With this newly discovered realization Emma is forced to realize that she is on her own and that friends and society will not save her in a time of life where she needs them the most.”
Christian Potalivo and Jannik Tai Mosholt, the acclaimed duo, is behind one of Netflix’s most popular non-English-language series, The Rain.
From Middelbo to Meteorbo, Emma says when she finds out about the true story about a meteor that crashed there 17 years ago to be a spaceship. She and her friends learn about the signals from outer-space and strange mysteries in their town. As they get to the bottom of their town’s secrets, she is questioned: “Who are you?”.
