Like the Sun film is organized in three story lines, which stand for three distinct types of utopia and at the same time represent three grand areas of human inquiry — science, art, and religion. Each is associated with a character, central to that particular research endeavor, and a location being scrutinized. Three characters: the Spy, the Artist, and the Girl. Three locations: Auroville (India), Moscow (Russia), and Biosphere 2 (Arizona, USA). Either through the exploration of a new type of habitat — an ideal city of spiritual socialism or an artificial ecosystem amidst the Arizona desert, or through the psychogeographical drift in the streets of Moscow — the protagonists, although unaware of one another, act in concord and share a common mission. As the projects reveal their utopian nature (the ideal city fails to meet the expectations of its citizens, the science-fiction dream of creating man-made living systems and the situationist agenda of transforming society through art turn out to be unrealizable), the characters come together with irreducible extracts of these experiences to create a new culture.
