Threat advisory: Under evaluation
Doctor Chris Kelvin (George Clooney) is sent to investigate the unexplained behaviour of a small group of scientists aboard the space station Prometheus, who have cut off all communication with Earth.
Kelvin undertakes the journey after watching a communique‚ from his close friend Gibarian (Ulrich Tukur), the mission's Commander, who seeks Kelvin's help aboard the Prometheus for reasons Gibarian is unwilling - or unable - to explain. Keenly aware that his opinion will decide the fate of the orbital station, Kelvin is shocked by what he finds upon his arrival: Gibarian has committed suicide and the two remaining scientists are exhibiting signs of extreme stress and paranoia, seemingly caused by the results of their examination of the planet Solaris.
Kelvin, too, becomes entrapped in the unique world's mysteries. Solaris, somehow, presents him with a second chance at love - to change the course of a past relationship that has caused him overwhelming guilt and remorse. But can he really revisit and alter the past? Or is he fated to repeat its mistakes?
