And all along Jane is receiving strange psychic transmissions that she can’t explain, can’t quite believe are real, and can’t reveal to her team, for fear they’ll assume she’s gone insane.
Jane fights the growing doubts of her colleagues as she attempts to decipher what the alien voice wants from her. As the crew gets cut off from their escape route, Jane must decide if she can trust the alien’s help to survive.
