After Earth becomes uninhabitable, humans are frozen and sent to space to preserve mankind. Thousands of years later, Earth is ready to sustain life again. During activation, a malfunction causes a young woman's pod to fail and she lands on the planet's surface alone. She learns to survive on the unfamiliar planet but yearns for human interaction. Each day she searches for other people and each day she loses more hope, until one day she finds a device that only a human would possess.
