Long time considered as being a part of the Science fiction field, asteroids mining exploitation is on the verge of becoming a reality. 
Powerful actors and states are preparing seriously for it, since it could very well be the answer to the growing needs in rare metals that are necessary to our numerical revolution and our energetic transition.
What steps still separate us from the advent of this new mining era? And what does this Eldorado dream reveal about our way of exploiting our environment? 
Leaning on this fascinating theme that is space exploitation, the movie confronts two aspects of our civilization: its need to explore future territories, and its way to deal with the exploitation of present territories.
