WORLD PREMIERE - Remember Marc Price? The upstart director caused a media sensation at FrightFest 2008 after making his zombie horror COLIN for fifty quid. Well, he’s back, with a bigger budget for an ongoing battle for humanity when a group of rookie space fighter pilots face an armada of unbeatable enemy ships. When the trainee pilot and her mortally wounded gunner are shot down, they crash land on a nearby planet. An enemy craft offers the chance of spare parts to fix her ship, but then she spots another survivor - an enemy alien soldier with no intention of letting her escape.
