Ana and her mother are leaving a broken, war-torn Earth on a colony ship, bound for a habitable planet called Omega in the Proxima Centauri system. Having recently lost her father, both Ana and her mother are hoping for a fresh start. But there are people on board who pose a threat to their new life, bringing their old Earth enmities into space. When Ana wakes up from hyper-sleep, she discovers that the ship has crash-landed on Omega. Most of the other sleep pods are open, including her mother’s, but where is everyone?
