The past, present and future of the CubeSat microsatellite technology is explored, with a particular emphasis upon the efforts of venturing beyond our own world by the Center for Advanced Energy Studies by Idaho National Laboratory.
The story revolves around the passengers of a yachting trip in the Atlantic Ocean who, when struck by mysterious weather conditions, jump to another ship only to experience greater havoc on the open seas.
Six different people, each from a very different walk of life, awaken to find themselves inside a giant cube with thousands of possible rooms. Each has a skill that becomes clear when they must band together to get out: a cop, a math whiz, a building designer, a doctor, an escape master, and a disabled man. Each plays a part in their thrilling quest to find answers as to why they've been imprisoned. Written by

Leaven cracks a lens on her glasses in the beginning of the film. However, during some shots, the crack in the lens is missing. See more »
We've been going in circles.
That can't be.
[Quentin hauls Leaven off the ground and over to the window to the outside]
Where are we?
I don't know.
[roaring like a lion]
Where are we?
*You* figure it out! You haven't done anything! All you do is freak out, you murderer!
[Leaven weeps, while Worth is oddly laughing. Quentin drops to the floor]
I guess you were right, Worth. There is no way out of here.
[Quentin begins crying, and Kazan pats his head]
Get away from me.

It probably cost about half the budget of this movie, to make the opening sequence, which successfully gets your attention. Once it has your attention it simply refuses to let you go, it is compelling to say the least.
The entire cast were pretty much unknown when the film was made (and most still are), but they all gave fine performances throughout. Without the successful casting this film could have easily been a disaster, as it is almost entirely character driven. I'm glad to say that definitely is not the case.
Despite the low budget and practically unknown cast, the film manages to be clever, intriguing, thought-provoking and highly enjoyable. sadly, this film is probably a one off, i can't think of another low budget film that has half the impact of this one.
8/10 and worth every point
