This documentary focuses on people who dream of going to Mars. While each comes from a different background (engineer, writer, scientist, university student, etc.), they all share their candid views on the subject, particularly the Americans who are convinced that they will someday have a chance to colonize the Red Planet.
In addition to interviews with astronomers, geologists, astrophysicists, and their specialists, the film includes visits to the Mars Society and a simulated base station located in the Mojave Desert in Utah. While considering the need and potential for traveling to Mars, the ambitious work provides suggestions about the history and future of the Earth.
