A small group of men and women with criminal pasts accept an extremely dangerous mission to deep space in order to avoid the death penalty. They are to fly into a black hole, in the hope of harnessing its energy for Earth.

Dr. Dibs (Juliette Binoche), who was imprisoned for killing her children and husband, is on board to see to the health of the participants, but also to experiment on them.

  • 5 stars "Movie really gives you a sense of dread. Has some very factual space travel effects like taking 4 yrs to slow down from 99 percent of light speed so body can adjust etc... Plus it's very sad and stark."
