When a tragic accident cuts short the first manned mission to explore life on the moons of Jupiter, Michael Forrest must make the 3 year journey home to Earth in pure solitude. Michael struggles to stay sane in the solitude while attempting to make repairs to the space craft, named Life One, in order to fire the engines after swinging around Venus. Without the engines firing, Life One would stay in orbit around Venus. Mission control and Michael keep in regular contact, with Michael giving regular status reports on himself, and mission control giving encouragement and help in repairing the ship. Michael grows more frustrated over time as the repairs prove ineffective during engine tests. After a hallucination of his fellow astronaut jolts him awake, he makes one final effort to repair the ship which proves successful.
