Dr. Chris Kelvin (Clooney) is asked to investigate the unexplained behavior of a small group of scientists aboard the space station Prometheus, who have cut off all communication with Earth after studying the planet Solaris.

Kelvin undertakes the journey after watching a communiqué from his close friend Gibarian (Tukur), the mission's commander, who seeks Kelvin's help for reasons Gibarian is unwilling -- or unable -- to explain. Keenly aware that his opinion will decide the fate of the orbital station, Kelvin is shocked by what he finds upon his arrival... and becomes entrapped in Solaris' mysteries. Solaris, somehow, presents him with a second chance at love -- to change the course of a past relationship that has caused him overwhelming guilt and remorse. But can he really revisit and alter his past? Or is he fated to repeat its mistakes?

Adapted from the classic science-fiction novel by Stanislaw Lem.
