On a remote moon, a teenage girl and her father search for elusive alien gems. But they aren’t the only ones roaming the moon’s toxic forest in this gripping sci-fi western about survival and wanting to get home.

“A compelling work of art that is unlike any other low-budget space travel film you have ever seen … this is the real stuff that dreams are made of.” – Christopher Llewellyn Reed, Hammer to Nail

Cee (newcomer Sophie Thatcher) and her father Damon (Jay Duplass, Transparent) are on a risk-filled mission to strike it rich by mining a unique mineral found on a seemingly uninhabited moon. Once their broken down spaceship lands, it becomes apparent they are going to need another way off the planet. As the father/daughter duo try to harvest the large deposit of elusive gems AND find a way to return home, they discover that several other prospectors are also after the gems, and the job quickly devolves into a fight for survival. Forced to contend not only with the moon’s other ruthless inhabitants, but also with her own father’s greed-corrupted judgement, Cee finds she must carve her own path in order to escape.   First-time feature filmmakers Christopher Caldwell and Zeek Earl have adapted their highly-acclaimed 2014 short of the same name into a lush, moody and visually spectacular blue-collar sci-fi western. Also starring Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) and Andre Royo (The Wire).  (Dir. by Christopher Caldwell & Zeek Earl, 2018, USA, 98 mins., Rated R). Other festivals: SXSW; Seattle | Tucson Premiere
