In 2270, Earth is completely depleted and no one lives there anymore. Those that have money move to Rhea; but most of the population lives in orbit in space stations. Dr. Laura Portmann decides to work in the cargo ship Kassandra in an eight year travel to Station 42 that is in orbit of RH278 to raise money to meet her sister Arianne in Rhea. They keep in touch with each other, but their messages take three years to reach the other. Laura joins Captain Pierre Lacroix and his crew composed by the First Officer Anna Lindbergh; Communication Officer Miyuki Yoshida and Igor Prokoff and Claudio Vespucci. The Sky Marshall Samuel Decker joins the team since the terrorist group Luddites, led by Klaus Bruckner, is bombing the stations. Lacroix organizes shifts of eight and half months for each crew-member while the others rest in cryogenic sleep.

At the beginning of the film, you can hear somebody playing a video game. However, the sound is actually taken from two different games, Super Mario Land (1989) and Tetris (1989), both for the original Nintendo Game Boy. See more »
At no point during its 4 year journey does the Kassandra "flip" over. Any reaction engine powered space ship would accelerate for around half of its journey (or until terminal velocity is reached), then turn around and decelerate to arrive at its destination at a sensible velocity. See more »
I'm so glad that I overlooked some of the poor responses posted about this film and rented it.
I found it absolutely riveting - and beautiful.
The first few minutes recall aspects of the BladeRunner modern cityscape - but on steroids, with the aid of modern day visual effects. The plot is interesting and unfolds nicely keeping your interest and attention. No big stars, no truly stellar performances, but the story line is solid and I was so taken in by it, that I'm going to watch it again tonight, with someone else who's not yet seen it. Some mesmerizing visuals and scenarios. The lighting is particularly strong, creating great ambiance and dramatic effect, without drawing too much attention to itself. This movie is about human frailty, various emotions and connections, about the work we do in order to follow our dreams. It also relates feelings of being small, powerless, and becoming disconnected because of technology - assessing trust in others and in the systems which dominate our lives, searching for 'truth' and authentic experiences...
A very unconventional melding of ideas which for me, worked on many different layers.
Highly worth a trip for any Sci-Fi lover.
