A teenage girl and her father travel to a remote alien moon, aiming to strike it rich. They’ve secured a contract to harvest a large deposit of the elusive gems hidden in the depths of the moon’s toxic forest.
But there are others roving the wilderness and the job quickly devolves into a fight to survive.
Forced to contend not only with the forest’s other ruthless inhabitants, but with her own father’s greed-addled judgement, the girl finds she must carve her own path to escape.
Starring Pedro Pascal, Sophie Thatcher and Jay Duplass.
"The film balances genre thrills with a detailed depiction of prospecting on an alien world"
"It’s a stunning example of world building through toying with the stuff that has more texture than CGI: production design, costuming, and even language."
"a slow-boiling showdown with hints of noir-westerns like Deadwood and The Treasure of Sierra Madre, albeit with bulky air-filtration devices and gnarly spear-guns instead of whiskey and pistols."
