Os Escolhidos de Gaia conta a aventura Albert, que tem 15 anos e acaba de receber um convite que pode transformar sua vida e de sua família para sempre: a chance de pertencer a uma sociedade avançada que só é revelada a um grupo especial de pessoas. Com a perspectiva de viver melhor, seus pais e sua irmã gêmea Ruth mergulham em um novo e empolgante mundo, em que a tecnologia extremamente desenvolvida torna tudo mais fácil e divertido, ao mesmo tempo em que o contato com a natureza preenche os dias com paz e tranquilidade.
Porém, uma série de acontecimentos inusitados os faz desconfiar de que há algo de estranho por trás daquele local aparentemente perfeito, de justiça e liberdade. Após receber ameaças, a família é arrastada para o centro de um escândalo, com sérias acusações, tornando seu destino incerto, perigoso e obscuro – e muito longe do local que costumavam chamar de casa. Entre aventuras e descobertas, os personagens lidam com experiências universais, como a adaptação a um novo lugar, relacionamentos, primeiro amor e princípios como amizade, e confiança.
