Synopsis

When a mysterious alien species unexpectedly lands on Earth in a series of giant pods, an elite team – led by expert linguist Louise Banks – are brought together to investigate. With mankind seemingly heading inexorably for a global war, Banks and her team struggle to seek out answers for what’s going on. However, doing that involves taking a chance that not only threatens her own life, but the fate of the entire planet. Based on a short story by American writer Ted Chiang, this science-fiction drama serves as an antidote to the increasingly bombastic world of the modern blockbuster, grounding its narrative in something much more real and earthy, if no less fantastic.
