Directed by Faroukh Virani
Set in the near future, three Indian astronauts are on a one-way trip to a distant planet, Gliese 581g. Unfortunately, the ship’s captain passes away after an adverse reaction to the hyper-sleep. Now it’s up to the two remaining astronauts to land the vessel in his memory.
