The story of astronauts lost in space, the secret Roswell object re-examined and Brad Dourif as alien, telling us all about his home planet, where the atmosphere is composed of liquid helium and the sky is frozen. Using beautiful and unseen nature and space footage, and with haunting specially composed music, Herzog has embarked on what he regards as one of his most exciting and challenging films, and has created a spectacular work of imagery, sound and human emotion, and a very personal vision of science fiction.
