Terminally ill scientist Augustine Lofthouse, who has spent his life and career on research and discovery of another planet that people can live on, decides to spend the rest of his days at an evacuated station in the North Pole on Earth. While there, he identifies one active space shuttle, Aether, on its way back home, incidentally after finally discovering this very planet that Augustine was on working on finding. The bitter truth however is the fact that 'home' is not a safe place anymore. The year is 2049, and a catastrophe has hit Earth – thereby ensuring it is no more a habitable planet.

Augustine takes it upon himself to inform the returning shuttle that it would be better for them to turn back. Weak signals compel Augustine to ride across the blistering snow in the midst of a radioactive storm to bring back equipment that will help improve signals on time. Helping Augustine in his endeavour is a little speech impaired girl called Iris, who has supposedly been left behind by her family during the final evacuation.

Back on the shuttle, the team that has left the newly discovered planet, is looking forward to head back and reveal the truth about this new possibility of life. The team of astronauts onboard are a surprisingly chilled out lot, at least compared to character portrayals in other similar films that come under this genre. They play games, talk to holograms of their families, sing along together while on a spacewalk to fix serious signal issues – quite oblivious to the fact that they are heading back to nothing.
