With the help of their Coach the woman come to terms with a war and the pain of loss. As the final battle rages on earth once again turns to science and create a bomb called Buster machine III. If the bomb explodes it will create a black hole and will take away the alien threat. The Bomb is set of and suck our heroes away with it.
