After spending several months in an orbiting lab, three astronauts prepare to return to Earth only to find their de-orbit thrusters won’t activate. After initially thinking they might have to abandon them in orbit, NASA decides to launch a daring rescue. Their plans are complicated by a Hurricane headed towards the launch site—and a shrinking air supply in the astronauts’ capsule.
