Plot / Description

In this interplanetary adventure, a space shuttle embarks on the first mission to colonize Mars, only to discover after takeoff that one of the astronauts is pregnant. Shortly after landing, she dies from complications while giving birth to the first human born on the red planet – never revealing who the father is. Thus begins the extraordinary life of Gardner Elliot – an inquisitive, highly intelligent boy who reaches the age of 16 having only met 14 people in his very unconventional upbringing.  
 
While searching for clues about his father, and the home planet he’s never known, Gardner begins an online friendship with a street smart girl in Colorado named Tulsa. When he finally gets a chance to go to Earth, he’s eager to experience all of the wonders he could only read about on Mars – from the most simple to the extraordinary. But once his explorations begin, scientists discover that Gardner’s organs can’t withstand Earth’s atmosphere.  
 
Eager to find his father, Gardner escapes the team of scientists and joins with Tulsa on a race against time to unravel the mysteries of how he came to be, and where he belongs in the universe.

Voiceover

Study lab is over. Gotta go. Talk tomorrow? 
I'm not going anywhere.  
Once foster care spits me out, I'm gone. Nobody's ever real, you know? 
My best friend isn't even real.  
Tell me about it.  
That hurts my feelings.  
Tell me where you're really from.  
Mars. I was born here.  
Yeah. Sometimes I feel like I'm from a different planet, too. 
I want to go to Earth. 
He's met less than 15 people. He's being denied connection. His physical development is at the perfect place to do it. 
His heart can't handle our gravity. It's too risky. 
It's worth it. 
There's so many colors.  
Hi, hello. 
Get away from me. 
OK. 
Are you a transfer student? 
OK. 
Uh, excuse me, that's our emergency eye wash station.  
OK! 
So, uh, Gardner, you're from Mars? 
Yeah. Tulsa. My mother was an astronaut. She died on Mars giving birth to me. But this is my father. You're gonna help me find him. 
People have been lying to me my entire life. 
Just because something sounds crazy, doesn't mean it's not true.  
Oh! What is... 
It's just a horse. I'm on a road trip with an insane person.  
He's running out of time.  
Gardner, come with me now! 
No, this is my life. 
Gardner? Gardner! 
He wasn't lying.  
We found it! 
Let's go. 
Friend of yours? 
You made me human. And no matter what happens, it was worth it. All of it.  
 
(Lyrics) Feel the freedom of my heart 
Come carry me away 
Now heaven can wait 
 
(Lyrics) Whoa, shine a light on 
Shine a light on me 
Cause I was lost at sea 
While the waves were dragging me underneath
