‘Stowaway 2021’ Plot

The crew of a spaceship (potentially one in a Mars cycler orbit) headed to Mars discovers an accidental stowaway shortly after takeoff.

Too far from Earth to turn back and with resources quickly dwindling, the ship’s medical researcher emerges as the only dissenting voice against the group consensus that has already decided in favor of a grim outcome.

Even though the plot seems a little reductive, Penna’s assembled a killer cast that will certainly elevate the film to new levels.
