A man spends years alone on a space station orbiting Earth after losing communication with Houston/Earth. Time is spent on maintenance, exercise, watching old messages and reading a journal by a soldier in the American civil war 1864.
Misdirection is a key ingredient in the film. Director Eubanks wanted the viewer to continually feel they nearly have a grip on where the film is going; only to have their notions fall apart when the direction changes again - all the way to the very end. See more »
When they stop for gas and coffee at the beginning of the movie Nic asks where Haley has gone and then finds her overlooking a canyon with the morning sun covering her whole back but when Nic takes a seat there is a clear shadow of something up to the middle of Haley's back and what looks to be the shadow of a tree on her upper right shoulder.

The movie is a little slow at times, while the plot is not completely explained or even logical sometimes, but other than that, the film is perfect.
What I enjoyed most about the movie is that it is truly original in the way of Monsters or District 9 were. It starts as a hacker movie, continues as an alien encounter movie, goes into government conspiracies, only to turn everything on its head towards the end. While it is clearly a science fiction thriller, it feels more game like than a movie, because you feel immersed in it. The originality and this sensation of being in the story is something I have been missing for years. great job!
I am not going to tell you stuff about the story, because it would either spoil it or give you the wrong impression. You need to watch this film. It is worth it.
