In the wake of ecological collapse on Earth, all of the planet’s remaining flora and fauna have been preserved in giant space domes maintained by a small crew aboard the spaceship Valley Forge. When the crew receives orders to decommission the domes (so as to re-utilize the ships for commercial shipping), the crew’s ecologist Freeman Lowell (Bruce Dern) rebels, rejecting the orders and cutting himself off from the others in hopes of saving the last of Earth’s ecological diversity.
