The plot of the film revolves around a spaceship crew on a two-year mission to Mars. The crew consisted of commander Marina Barnett, biologist David Kim, and medical researcher Zoe Levenson. After takeoff from Earth, the upper stage of their launch vehicle is strapped to the main hull of the ship to act as an inertial-based artificial gravity offset. But not long after take-off, Barnett finds launch support technician Michael Adams, an accidental stowaway. The crew begins to bond with him, but Barnett soon learns that Michael accidentally destroyed CDRA.
This is a device that cleans all the carbon dioxide from the air on the ship. Without CDRA, they would have to use an emergency lithium hydroxide tube for scrubbing CO2 from the air in the spaceship. However, the tube can hold enough oxygen for only two passengers. Barnett then ordered David to cultivate algae on the ship rather than in the colonies of Mars as planned. Only half of the algae survived and provided sufficient oxygen for the third crew. Without another oxygen supply, the crew of four will experience shortness of breath before even reaching Mars. They are waiting for mission control to provide them with a solution to this dire situation.
But even they failed to help. The events changed in such a way that one had to die to protect the other three. Somebody has to go back and get the oxygen tank. But if they did, they would surely die from radiation poisoning. In this case, all members are willing to sacrifice for one another. But in the end Zoe insisted on doing this himself. He spent his last moments amidst the stars staring at Mars.
