Netflix describes the anime’s story:

The story begins in the year 2045, when AI has advanced and anyone can travel into space. Children born on the moon and children from Earth who are on a trip to space meet at the Japanese-built space station, “Anshin.” But their future is decided by the Seven Poem.
