Sometimes it takes a catastrophe for science to leap forward.
On May 20th, 2069, the spacecraft “Phoenix” embarks on its journey to Mars – humanity’s next frontier. Led by Commander Joy Liore, the crew’s goal is to explore the possible colonization of the Red Planet.
They confirm landing.
Then they vanish.
Five days after contact with Phoenix is lost, Doctor M. Tzuk, an expert interplanetary psychologist, is appointed as head of the investigation force.
The mission will take her from the safety of the Houston Space Center to the desolate surface of Mars, where she will discover more about the human spirit than she ever thought possible.
As with those who came before her, Dr. Tzuk must find balance between the hopes and dreams of mankind – and her own.
