The film follows astronaut Sam Walker, played by Kate Mara, who returns from her first space mission only to be discovered wounded in a punctured capsule in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. She’s placed under NASA surveillance in a high-security house, isolated in the woods. As she begins to reacclimatize to life on Earth, strange occurrences lead her to suspect that something may have followed her back. With agencies that were meant to protect her now endangering her life, the stakes couldn’t be higher.

Jess Varley takes the helm as the writer and director of the film, with Dave Garbett serving as the Director of Photography. Jonathan Quinlan, known for his work on various high-profile projects, will be the Assistant Director.
