Batra plays astronaut and Mars mission commander, ‘Kathryn Voss,’ in One Under the Sun.
Following a catastrophic shuttle accident as the crew returns to Earth, Voss is the only survivor and emerges completely unscathed, with no memory of the event, and with an extraordinary gift. Voss simply wants to be reunited with her husband and terminally ill daughter one last time. Instead, she’s sequestered in a secret government facility, forcing her to become a fugitive from a government that fears her gift, what she represents, and seeks to eliminate the truth no matter what the cost.
Throughout the film, Voss is an agent of change that endeavors to help mankind learn, evolve and reach their full potential, free of world constantly on the brink of war. The movie explores concepts ranging from self-sacrifice and human dynamics to altruistic goals, and encompasses discovery of the Higgs boson that’s been dubbed the “God particle.”
The film issues a thought provoking concept – “Imagine a day without war.”
One Under the Sun has received critical acclaim at prestigious film festivals around the world. The movie co-stars Gene Farber of Captain America: Civil War fame in the Marvel Comic franchise; Ava Cantrell, star of Lights Out; and awarding-winner actor, Michael Keeley.
Produced by Sunny Vachher (P.G.A.) and directed by Vincent Tran and Riyaana Hartley, the cinematic sensation was filmed entirely in Los Angeles, Calif. Marvel Comics legend, Stan Lee, noted that “One Under the Sun brings audiences on an emotional journey and challenges their notions of war.”
The film premiered in the U.S. at Regal LA Live Cinemas, Feb. 25 and will release digitally March 21 by Gravitas Ventures.
