The year is 2020 and NASA has made another giant leap for mankind- successfully landing a team of astronauts on Mars. However, shortly after their arrival on the Martian surface, Mission Commander Luke Graham and his colleagues encounter something bizarre, shocking and chilling that brings about a catastrophic and mysterious disaster which decimates the crew. Graham is able to send one hasty cryptic message back to Earth before his nightmare begins. Haunted by the enigmatic last communication received from the ill-fated Mars One crew, NASA hurriedly prepares and launches a rescue mission to investigate the tragedy and bring back survivors- if any. Co-piloted by Commander Woody Blake and Jim McConnell, with colleagues Dr. Terri Fisher and scientist Phil Ohlmyer on board, the astronauts set out on a heroic six-month journey to Mars.
