When Earth becomes uninhabitable for humans, the ruling elite settle on Planet Kepler 209. But its atmosphere makes the new inhabitants sterile. Two generations later the ULYSSES programme is set up to determine whether life is possible on Earth again. Mission Ulysses II is launched to confirm it one way or the other. The space capsule loses control when it hits Earth’s atmosphere. Blake (NORA ARNEZEDER) is the only astronaut to survive the landing - but she finds out that she is not alone on Earth. A fight for survival begins and Blake has to make decisions that will determine the fate of humanity.
“These characters move in a world that is stunningly visualized but superficially conceived, and The Colony embodies a genre that seems — perhaps like humanity itself — unable to take a step forward in imagining a different future.” ~Roxana Hadadi, Polygon
