Outland is a 1981 science fiction film taking place in a distant future where mining colonies have been established on Io, one of Jupiter's moons. Marshal W.T. O'Niel (Sean Connery) is recently assigned to the Io colony as a number of miners begin dying in violent deaths. Investigating, O'Niel with the assistance of Dr. Lazarus (Frances Sternhagen), the colony doctor, discovers that the miners are dying from doses of a lethal amphetamine they had been taking in order to work for days on end until becoming "burned out" and psychotic. Tracking a trail of drug pushers, O'Niel begins unraveling the trail of a conspiracy stretching to the highest levels of the colony's government. However, by tracking the conspiracy, O'Niel finds himself targeted by a band of hired assassins determined to end the Marshall's investigation. Abandoned by the police force and forced to fend for himself against a horde of ruthless assassins, O'Niel chooses to take a stand against all odds and bring the fight to those who would wage it.
