After a freak accident, Carys and Max are left adrift in space with nothing to hold onto but each other. As they fall, they can’t help but look back at the world they left behind. A world whose rules they couldn’t submit to, a place where they never really belonged; a home they’re determined to get back to because they’ve come too far to lose each other now. While their air ticks dangerously low, one is offered the chance of salvation—but who will take it?
It might be a bit early to call, but we’re pretty much already sold on this one, especially with Boyega and Wright—two of the biggest stars to emerge from two of the most groundbreaking sci-fi and fantasy film’s in recent years—as leads.
