Following a sandstorm on Mars, astronaut Mark Watney was left by his crew believing he has died on the red planet. With nothing more than his ingenuity and humor, he’ll have to find a way to survive until the next mission to Mars which could take him home. That’s if he can first find a way to contact Earth.
