On the last day of the first manned mission to Mars, a crew member believes he has discovered fossilized evidence of bacterial life. Unwilling to share the glory of such a discovery, he disobeys orders to pack up and goes on an unauthorized solo mission to find more evidence. However, disaster strikes when he falls into a crevice to certain death. His crew attempts to recover the body, but when another one of them vanishes they begin to realize that the life-form they have discovered is not dead after all. Alone with the mysterious killing bacteria, their only hope of rescue is the arrival of the relief ship Aurora.
After a successful Cannes premiere, Magnet is eying a release through its Ultra VOD program later this year.
