On the eve of the first mission to a potential habitable extrasolar planet, two very different people meet in a bar. Underneath the thrilling anticipation of discovery, their evening together exposes a current of wistfulness for the life the astronaut explorer is leaving behind.

Odessa was directed by Cidney Hue and stars Cat Walleck and Ken Fuller as the central pair. It's a very human take on the idea of an astronaut going into stasis for a long voyage—recognizing that someone can have no doubts about their commitment to discovery and still feel that there's no place like home.
