After being diagnosed with a terminal illness, Samantha Calloway, a twenty-something astronomy professor, reconsiders and decides to take part in a government funded exoplanet research project which is as secretive as it is risky, but after she goes missing, her fiancé journeys to the distant Earth-like planet Caelarus to ascertain her fate.
Due to the unusual way in which project volunteers do planetary reconnaissance, when Samantha conducts follow up observation of Caelarus, to everyone's surprise, her consciousness becomes permanently separated and appears to be lost in the void. Refusing to write off his fiancee, Mark Johnston travels to Caelarus where he enlists the aid of Beth, a young woman who possesses the same unique skill set as Samantha. Together, he and Beth undertake a risky unsanctioned journey to the southern continent to search for Samantha. At journey’s end, Mark struggles to come to grips with an obvious truth as he and Beth navigate their way through an alien culture of mysterious origins: he must learn how to let go of someone he knew in another life, a woman who now goes by the name Aasasanna.
