Passage to Mars is the true story of a six-man crew’s adventures aboard HMP Okarian, a NASA experimental vehicle, attempting “the first Martian road trip” on Earth. Training for Mars exploration in the High Arctic, these intrepid explorers undertake a 2000-mile journey across the frozen sea of the forbidding Northwest Passage—but their expedition planned to last a few weeks is about to become an epic two-year odyssey.

Isolated Devon Island is the final destination of the Humvee Okarian, a NASA experimental vehicle that is a critical part of a vast project training man for Mars exploration. Devon is a place NASA calls “Mars-on-Earth”:   for years, spacesuits and robots have been tested there, and astronauts have been trained for upcoming human voyages to Mars.  To learn how to explore the Red Planet, the Passage to Mars crew members first have to face the alien world that is Earth. 
This bone-chilling Arctic journey—a daily struggle against the unpredictable whims of an often furious nature—will test their persistence and resolve, and force them to confront the aeons-old human dream of exploring the mythical planet Mars.

Thought-provoking, spectacular, Passage to Mars is above all a voyage through the beauties and the deadly dangers of two worlds:  the High Arctic and the planet Mars. The filmmakers take audiences on board the Okarian, allowing to share viscerally in a journey of fears and doubts, hopes and dreams.
The real Mars on the big screen for the first time!
