In this timeless love story about human connection, Alex (Kyle Allen) is struggling after the death of his brother and latches on to an opportunity to leave it all behind for a one-way mission to Mars, much to the dismay of his concerned family (Carrie Preston, Madeleine Brewer and Kevin Bacon). However, an unexpected romance (with Alexandra Shipp’s character) forces him to choose between an uncertain journey to the stars or an even more uncertain journey of the soul. It’s the perfect blend of humor and heart.
