On the eve of an epic global discovery—a second Earth glowing in the sky—two strangers, John and Rhoda, collide in a tragedy that forever changes their lives. Four years later the two, both shadows of their former selves, slowly come together as an unlikely couple. But looming almost as largely as the distant new Earth are the harsh realities of truth,, guilt, and the complexities of forgiveness. In this stunning collaboration, director Mike Cahill and mesmerizing actress/co-writer Brit Marling present the rare, successful hybrid of high-concept science fiction film and scrappy independent, fearlessly asking of their audience "What would you do if you met another you?"
