A teenage girl and her father travel to a remote alien moon, aiming to strike it rich. They've secured a contract to harvest elusive gems hidden in the depths of the moon's toxic forest. But there are others roving the wilderness and the job quickly devolves into a fight to survive. Forced to contend not only with the forest's other ruthless inhabitants, but with her own father's judgement, the girl must carve her own path to escape.

Low-key intimate drama set in enclosed spaces and a forest on an alien moon (filmed in Washington). A father and his teenage daughter are searching for gemstones. There are baddies and scavengers. It’s a slow burn that never catches fire and none of it rings true. But with its relaxing score and an appealing heroine in Sophie Thatcher, it’s oddly watchable in an arboreal sort of way.
One of the worst films ever..utterly boring ultra low budget nonsense had to turn it off after a cringewortjy 40 minute & if it wasn't a rental disc would have put it out with the daily domestic trash..AVOID AVOID AVOID .
Low budget; people in space suits in a forest. No special effects and no CGI. Rocket capsule with less sophisticated equipment than a washing machine. Reminded me of early Doctor Who. However, it did engage me with its simple action drama. Dad and daughter are prospectors searching for rare stones but collide with outlaws doing the same thing; not to mention forest locals. This story could transfer to the wild west or the frontier of any place, say, the Australian outback in 19th century, it is that kind of story. A 90 minute quick B movie really.

The worst sci fi film I have seen
- Prospect review by DS
This film looks like it was made by a motley team of film students in the 1970s. It screams low budget and and has a boring nonsensical plot. Most of the "action" consists of people walking around in space/climate suits in a forest that looks very Earth-like. It has zero interest and originality and the acting is pure ham. I fast forwarded much of it to avoid pulling out my own fingernails to alleviate the pain of viewing this dreadful offering. Do not waste your time watching this film.
