An astronomer obsessed with the search for alien life is fired from the university when his emotional past begins to affect his judgement. Determined to discover life in the distant universe, he enlists the help of a down-on-her luck research assistant. As the pair looks toward the night sky, they begin to make contact with the things that make life worth living.

A discussion led by Michelle Nichols, Senior Educator at the Adler Planetarium & Astronomy Museum, will immediately follow the screening.
