Earth is on the brink of an environmental disaster. The population has risen to more than 20 billion and huge areas of the planet are uninhabitable. Against this backdrop, a massive black sphere is discovered in the orbit of Mars. The Sphere begins to transmit a single word in each of Earth‘s languages: Deus (God). Commercial spaceship, The Achilles is sent to investigate but, on approaching the red planet, it becomes damaged by a strange beam of light emanating from the sphere. Will the crew survive and discover the origin of the sphere and its purpose?
Claudia Black (Farscape, Stargate SG-1) and David O' Hara (Braveheart) lead a stellar cast in this intriguing and grand looking space drama. We are delighted to have the World Premiere of this British sci-fi, screening at the festival.
