CAPTURE THE FLAG is inspired by the 1960s space race and sees a ruthless billionaire bent on exploiting the source of Helium 3, the clean energy of the future. His plan involves rewriting history to excise the feats of the Apollo XI astronauts and the Moon landing. Enter headstrong 12-year-old surfer, Mike Goldwing, who along with his friends, a small lizard with delusions of Godzilla-like grandeur, and his grandfather, travels to the Moon to thwart evil. Jordi Gasull, a co-writer on The Last Explorer, is creator and co-scripter.
CAPTURE THE FLAG follows Mike Goldwing, a plucky, determined 12-year-old kid who lives in Florida. He’s the son and grandson of astronauts. His grandfather Frank was meant to fly to the moon with Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong on Apollo XI, but a few days before the moon mission, his baby son, now Mike’s father, got chicken pox and Frank could not go on the mission. Blaming his son for the frustration of his whole career and horrified at this sense of blame, Frank has distanced himself from the family. A dastardly Texas billionaire, Richard Carson, plans to fly to the moon, destroy the Apollo XI flag, prove that the moon landings never happened and claim the moon’s
vast mineral sources for himself. When the U.S government decides to launch its own moon mission, Mike is determined to stowaway on the rocket to thwart Carson. But above all, Mike wants to ensure at least one Goldwig gets to the moon to end his family’s frustration and reconcile his grandpa and dad.
El ambicioso multimillonario Richard Carson desea apropiarse del satélite terrestre y explotar la fuente de energía limpia y real del futuro; el Helio 3. Pero para ello deberá borrar de la historia la gesta de los astronautas del Apolo XI y sus famosos primeros pasos por la Luna, acontecimiento que para el 40% de la población mundial es una simple mentira. El único capaz de impedir que Carson se salga con la suya es Mike Goldwing, un simpático surfero de 12 años.
