Astronaut Sarah’s life’s dream is coming true: She gets the opportunity to fly to the ISS for a mission. But in addition to her efforts to make it in a male-dominated team, she struggles with her role as the mother of a 7-year-old daughter. The further the hard training progresses, the more uncertain she becomes whether she can really leave her daughter behind. PROXIMA draws the portrait of a courageous woman who accepts every challenge to fulfill her dreams. PROXIMA not only impresses with a great cast, with Eva Green in the leading role and Lars Eidinger and Sandra Hüller in supporting roles, but also with the completely new orientation of the genre space film.
