This movie starts with the starship Avalon as the main character. The ship is taking 5000 passengers and 200-some crew -- all in suspended animation -- on a 120-year mission to colonize the planet Homestead II. The ship maintains its course, adjusts its systems to changes, and keeps the sleeping people stable.
As Jim looks over the information on his fellow passengers, he becomes interested in Aurora Lane (Jennifer Lawrence). Jim struggled with the decision whether or not to wake her: He could really use companionship, but waking her would leave her stuck in the same situation as him. After bouncing back and forth, he wakes her up, helps her with their situation, and begins a relationship with her. But what will happen if she finds out he woke her up? Will anyone else awake early? And what's behind the occasional glitches on the Avalon -- which are becoming more frequent and serious?
