The movie takes you to the first landing on the planet Mars in 2020 by NASA's Mars I crew. Mars is a mysterious planet, but nothing could have prepared them for the life-changing things that were to unfold. What is supposed to be a simple trip meets uncalculated disaster when Luke and his crew are lost and possibly dead. The only hope that NASA has is to launch a search and recovery mission to find the lost crew. They send out two of their finest commanders in Mars II in hopes of locating any survivors. What Commanders Jim and Woody didn't know was that they too would be met with more surprises than they ever could have hoped for. Making it back to Earth alive becomes one of many feats the crew must try to overcome.
