Two jaded space tourism employees (Jack Reynor, Benedict Wong) take up an elderly woman's (Geraldine Chaplin) request for a trip back to Earth - a planet which has lost all life due to a catastrophic "solar fire". She's easily confused but very rich, so what's the harm in indulging her fantasies? As the journey unfolds, their scam begins to eat away at them and they ultimately find themselves dealt a bittersweet surprise.
