Science fiction. When an American space mission bound for Mars ends in disaster due to a huge sandstorm, the only crew member left alive is mission commander Luke Graham. His intermittent communications with Mission Control give the impression that there is some kind of life form on Mars. A recovery mission is sent to save him. Unfortunately there is an explosion in the engines of the recovery mission's spacecraft, forcing the crew to attempt a transfer by space-walk to a small orbiter. When one crew member is killed, those that are left manage to find Luke, who tries to tell them about a mysterious `force' which can provide the answer to the secrets of existence, not only on Mars but on Earth itself.
