Set in a future where humans have abandoned Earth for the distant plant of Nova Prime, living there for a millennia. The plot focuses on a father, Cypher Raige and his teenage son Kitai. The relationship between the two has been somewhat strained by Raige being away on an extended tour of duty, but when they are finally reunited they quickly find themselves in trouble.
Their spacecraft is damaged in an asteroid storm and they’re forced to crash land on Earth. Ragie is seriously injured, forcing Kitai to search the planet for their rescue beacon which will enable them to get back to civilisation of Nova Prime.
A really thought provoking piece of work – definitely worth a trip to the cinema.
