Viking

The Viking Society is recruiting volunteers for the first manned mission to Mars. The goal is to form a B-team that will mirror the mission here on Earth in order to find solutions to the interpersonal problems that the Mars-bound crew is experiencing. The film tells the story of David, a high school gym teacher, who seizes this opportunity to revive his dream of becoming an astronaut and making a difference. Viking is a little absurd, falling somewhere between a high-concept comedy and a straight up allegorical tale. It is a story about the gap between our dreams and reality.
