A father and daughter risk everything to save the life of the wife and mother who left them. The race to Mars becomes a multilevel culture clash for its leaders as well. Their stories unfold one by one as under a dying sun, alien archaeologist uncover the mysteries of the Red Planet s rich and varied future history.
