Avionics engineer Nick (Joseph Wycoff) lives a fairly normal life with wife Laura (Caroline Muller) and their two children, 16 year old Max (Kelaan Schloffel-Armstrong) and 14 year old Rachel (Grace Goulter) - until he unexpectedly gets a letter from the MarsX program, telling him he's been shortlisted for the first flight to Mars, a one-way ticket as one of the first group of colonists. He has applied for this without telling his family as he never expected for it to go anywhere, but now that it has, he's more than excited - though not so his family, who naturally don't want to see him leaving, even if it's more than a decade in the future. He fails to see their point, as he always wanted to go to space, and this is a big opportunity to make history. So soon enough, Rachel doesn't talk to him anymore, and Rachel throws him out of their house - only Max thinks his dad's plans are kind of cool. Things come to a head though when first Rachel goes missing, then turns up utterly drunk, and later it turns out she has cancer - all of which reminds Nick of his role as a father ...


Now truth to be told, the premise of this movie is a bit far-fetched, thus might not ring too true with everyone in the audience. That said, if you can wrap your mind around it, then this is a pretty solid drama, as the characters all seem real and relatable, in spite of or even because of their flaws, the situations they get into are believable and down to earth, and everything is carried by a subtle directorial effort and a pretty strong ensemble.

A very ok drama for sure.
