Meet the Jet Propulsion Lab Scientist mom and her underachiever teenage daughter. Sara lives on Mars time, spearheading the Mars Rover Expedition, visiting a planet she cannot touch. Her daughter, Lis, on earth time, falls under the spell of an internet romance. Sometimes it takes being worlds apart for an exploring woman and a longing-to-be-explored girl to find each other in our increasingly disconnected universe. A tender dramedy about the challenges of a unique mother-daughter relationship. (Contains adult content and language.)
The five-member cast of Out of Orbit includes Michael Lopetrone and MSU Students Christine Elliot, Ejiro Enajero and Lukas Jacob, and Emily Sutton-Smith. The director is Frannie Shepherd-Bates.
