The whole world is watching the first manned flight to Mars, whilst its three astronauts are plunged into a hair-raising battle for survival, within a clandestine operation involving intrigue and murder. The astronauts are ordered to participate in an elaborate charade, simulating a Martian landing as cameras roll and the entire world is their audience. The astronauts, knowing their very existence poses a threat to National Security, escape, hoping that one of them will live to expose the sensational fraud.
