The Shining meets 2001 in this tense, psychological thriller. An archaeological discovery in a remote African cave has seismic implications on the origins of man and becomes the catalyst to a manned mission to Mars. But when the crew finally enters the orbit of the mysterious Red Planet a journey of hope and discovery soon dissolves into one of terror and despair. Are the crew simply descending into madness brought on by the crushing isolation of deep space, or are more sinister and cosmic forces at work?
