    • Synopsis
    • Based on an award-winning short story from one of today’s most renowned science fiction writers, Ted Chiang, Story of Your Life takes the alien invasion movie genre to new heights. After aliens land around the globe, a linguist (Adams) is recruited by the US government in a race to decipher their intentions on Earth.

      Faced with the unimaginable, Banks works against time and reason to translate the aliens’ message.

      As she pieces together the puzzle, we remain unsure – do they come in peace or are they the embodiment of our worst fears? Are they leading the world into self-destruction or will they help save us from ourselves?

      Story of Your Life will keep you guessing until the very end.
