Cargo (2009) Script

You were right. Earth will not succeed.

Until the last ones who escaped from Earth they arrived.

But there is no more place here either.

Epidemics are spreading fast.

I can not stand it.

People are dying in my arms.

I have applied to be a doctor in a cargo ship.

Four years to get there and another four to return.

I spend most of the time in hibernation.

This single flight ...

... and I will have enough money to ...

... go to Rhea.

And finally we will be together again.

Did you hear my dear sister? I have to go.

I want to get to Rhea.

And finally see you and the children again.

┬┐Dra. Laura Portmann?

Anna Lindbergh, First Officer.

Welcome aboard.

Everybody, listen up.

Miyuki Yoshida, systems administrator.

This mouthpiece here is Claudio Vespucci.

Luckily Prokoff not talking so much.

Dr. Portmann.

Station 42 will be transformed in transport center.

It's in the Orth Cloud, halfway to Proxima ...

... and is in stable orbit around RH278.

The autopilot is activated.

Because of all the recent terrorist attacks...

... the temporary government ordered the presence ...

... of a Star Commissioner on each ship.

Damn snitches.

"Maschinen Stuermer" is said to be ...

... preparing acts of major sabotage.

This ship is already in decline, no one would sabotage anything.

Lieutenant Samuel Decker. Space Security Agency.

We will seal the compartment charging in 30 minutes.

If you want to get to know someone, You better do it now.

At 0200 the engines will start.

At 0230 we will meet in cryo-chambers.

Have good company.

According to resolution 278 from RBS ...

... from now on there will be curators stellar even on cargo flights.

Just accept me as part of the crew.

"This is a transmission TSA briefing. "

"The threats of terrorist attacks never have been so present since the great collapse. "

"Klaus Bruckner is still on the run after his last terrorist attack. "

"This man is responsible of the latest bombings ...

"... at stations 20, 23, and 24."

"While he declares responsibility for the current attacks, ... "

"... keep spreading the messages from the "Maschinen Stuemer."

"We are living on machines."

"What are we producing? Machines."

"Our enemy is the TSA."

"There will be no peace while technology continues to govern us. "

"Down with the machines!"

"Down with the seasons!"

"Because of the latest events, the TSA has ordered, ... "

"... guarantee the safety of the ship and its crew, ... "

"... with the company, on every flight, from a security officer. "

"Help Star Commissar on duty and ... "

Listen everyone this is the order of the turns.

Each shift will take 8 1/2 months.

I will take the first.

Then Lindbergh ...

... Yoshida ...

... Vespucci ...

... Prokoff ...

... Portmann.

And then at the end to deploy the load, again Lindbergh.

And if anyone has to face problems ...

... feel free to touch on the Decker tank.

"Dear Laura,"

"I'm sending you some sun from Rhea."

"I haven't had you in my arms for a long time..."

"it is not good that you are doing cargo flights. "

"We are worried."

"People say that the "Maschinen Stuermer" ... "

"... is becoming more and more aggressive."

"But what do you expect us to believe of information from four years ago? "

"I don't even want to think about what it could happen in the meantime. "

"I really hope you do well."

"Please keep in touch."

"I'll see you soon."

"Miss you."

Dear Arianne, I miss you too.

It is incredibly cold here, you can't even imagine.

I will send you some photos from the mess I've been in.

Well ... it's only two months away by the end of my shift.

We are four light years away from the earth.

And we are transporting material to build a station, so that someday, we can travel to Proxima.

It is said that there is also inhabited planets.

I really wanna be with you.

Please, do not worry.

I am doing it right.

I'll see you soon.

What are you doing here?

Someone opened the compartment load.

I was automatically awakened.

Why did you open the door?

You know it's strictly prohibited enter the cargo compartment.

Something is inside the port.

That's impossible.

There is something behind the port.

We must wake up to the crew now.

No, the hibernation phases they must remain intact.

But why don't you show it to me?

The rules say, that under Exceptional circumstances...

... we must wake up the Captain.

It seems that Dr. Portmann can't handle loneliness very well.

We are sorry we woke you up.

Let's just hope you're sure.

The costumes have been scattered due to over pressure.

The compartment has been opened several times during your turn.

I hope, for your sake, it is just a technical failure.

Come on.

The cargo compartment It is divided into 9 sectors.

You take from A to C.

You take from D to F.

And I'll take care of the rest.

Shouldn't we stay together?

I don't want to spend all night here.

We'll be in touch...

All containers are closed.

That's right, You should know that, Decker.

We do not find anything suspicious so far.

Except that we are not fully charged. Change.

Me neither.

It is understood. Keep looking. Change.

Lacroix, here Laura.





"What happened?"

I think Lacroix has fallen.

"Where are you?"

In sector E4-20.

Low towards sector G.

"I'm on my way!"


Can you hear me?

Lacroix, do you hear me?

Is he alive We have to get him out of the cold now!

The door!

According to the regulations, I'll be in command of the ship.

Prokoff, Vespucci fix the door.

The cargo compartment it must be sealed immediately.

Yoshida, check all the entries on the main computer ...

... and check for suspicious activity.

And you will examine Lacroix's body.

I want the exact cause of death.

Recording begins.

Multiple spinal fractures.

Brain skull damage.

Allegedly caused for a big fall.

Time of death: a few minutes after impact.

I thought we were transporting Construction materials.

That's what I thought too.

What happens to the door?

It's bullshit. Everything is locked and the gears also look broken.

It must have been here.


I have the Lacroix badge.


It's a boy!

All containers they are full of humans.

"Vespucci, Prokoff."


"Please come to sector F7-21."

Why the hell do we transport humans to Station 42?


That's really ...


Move on!

Come on, come on, come on!



What's going on here?

The containers are full of humans.

Loading is a matter for the company.

Lacroix was assassinated.

Lacroix opened the door and because of ...

... the overpressure of the containers was pushed into the abyss.

Someone set the containers and they almost killed us.

The containers move automatically, to avoid freezing.

So it is forbidden to be in the cargo compartment.

There is someone on board the ship.

He killed Lacroix and almost killed us.

Did you know there were humans in the containers?

This tank will be returned immediately.

This is a human!

As a doctor I am responsible by the people on board.

And I'm going to examine this girl now.

Exactly what I was thinking.

And what's more, I am authorized to inspect any incident on this ship.

Containers along with tanks They may have to do with Lacroix's death.

Then do your duty.

But you can be sure that I will report this incident.

Tank inspection. Recording begins.

No useful scan recovery of the abdomen.

Changing to high frequency.

Scanning possible of the head area.

The girl shows some minor brain activity.

I assume a coma caused from hibernation.

Stopping recording.

Did you find something?

It will take a while before to have accurate results.

I can help?

Yes maybe.

The tank is blocking the scanner and It is secured with an electronic seal.

Did you find something?

I need something you can find in Decker.

There is something wrong with him. It should be on our side.


Due to encryption Asymmetric RSA.

It could take a while.

What do you know about Station 42?

It is an uninhabited station.

Officially being remodeled to be a transport station to Proxima.

And extra officially?

Why did you enlist in this mission?

I need money, that's all.

You want to go to Rhea.



My sister lives in Rhea.

She earned Rhea's visa seven years ago.

She is living our dream.

Probably the classifier automatic again.

What if there really is something on board?

Fuck it. Let's just try to fix this.

Starting recording.

The girl's brain is nuanced with inorganic tissue.

Tissue entrances into the body.

Cervical C4, fissure in the nape.

It seems an internal growth.

Or lack of bone.

A VR connector.

Apparently a perfected one.

I've never seen anything like this.

We could connect it to an external system.

That is too dangerous.

That could lead to damage. irreparable neural cells.

It is the only way to get more information about access.

Under no circumstance.

I will not risk this girl's life.


For now, keep these results between us.

In agreement?

Hi Hanna.

So many things are happening here ...

... that I would like to share them with you.

Why are we so far away one from the other?

And it takes centuries for messages to get through.

I don't know what it is anymore happens on board.

We found a girl in the cargo compartment.

I am trying to help her.

We will meet soon.

And then I'll tell you everything.

I was so happy to receive your message!

It's so good to hear your voice and know that you are alive.

Did you find a girl?

I do not get it.

I would like to speak to you in person.

Why does it take so long to the messages to arrive?

Laura listens.

We don't want you to do more cargo travel.

Come directly to Rhea.

Could you stay with us for a while.

We will prepare a room for you and ...

I am anticipating your arrival.

You will soon be with us.

I do not understand what happens here.

How is it possible that my sister respond so fast?

Why do you have knowledge about neural accesses?

Why shouldn't I tell you to anyone about the exam?

What do you know about people in the tanks?

Who the hell are you?

Everyone report to the bridge immediately.

Yoshida reviewed all entries in blog and compared them to the backup.

He discovered that a crew member has manipulated the records of the cryo cameras.

Why didn't you tell us you were woke up regularly?

It is part of my duties to check the ship periodically.

So you don't deny that you've left I raise cameras without our knowledge.

No, that is correct.

Where were you when Lacroix died?

I knew it! Damn snitch!

It was in sector F5-17.

And they cannot demand an account on the work I do for RBS.

Arrest him.

Put down your gun!

I have immunity. You know.

Not if you're a murder suspect.

Put the gun down!

I could have believed you if you hadn't resisted.

Vespucci, how much longer you will need with the door '

48 hours.

Dr. Portmann return the tank to cargo compartment immediately.

That's impossible. I gave the patient a drug that pulls back the filaments.

She is not stable. It cannot be returned.

That is none of my business!

I want that tank back before the door is repaired.

This is an order!

Do you understand Take him to the cryo chambers.

You must go to the medical station first.

I must treat his wounds or blood will contaminate the coolant.

You are doing your job well.

Have you received another message from your sister?

Vespucci, medical station, please Laura!

Laura wait!

We are not flying to Station 42.

So where are we headed?

Towards Rhea.

Will you do me a favor?

Could you check if we really Are we heading to Station 42?


I was on the bridge and I got into the system.

The coordinates of our destination they are well protected, but ...

... I can tell you that, certainly, we are not heading to Station 42.

And it is also definitive that ...

... no one could have changed the coordinates during the trip.

Because they can only be established before departure.

I'm trying to establish where we are going.

But that means that Decker was not able to change the coordinates.

How long does it take for a message get to Rhea?

Probably half an eternity. As usual.

Several years?

My sister answered me in 20 minutes.

If that's true, then Lindbergh lied to us.

Only she has the access for the destination coordinates.

Decker told me we were flying to Rhea.

Hey, hey, look who's here!

The door has already been repaired.

And so Prokoff and I are giving a small party in the rooms.

I have no time. I have work to do.

And what about our party?

Thanks for your help!

But, you will come, right?

We have heated the room for this event.

You're not going to stay that long, are you?

The last doctor went to Rhea.

We can never pay for something like that.

Don't even taste that shit!

Probably the radiator.

What are you doing?

The party is not over yet.

I'll bring Yoshida some tea.

Okay ... but hurry up.

And make sure Lindbergh don't know anything.

She would ruin our party.

Don't worry, I'll be right back.

Decker ...

That son of a bitch is gone.

If I put my hands on him ...

He was manually awakened.

Someone must have let him out.

So we have a stowaway on board after all.


We will search the entire ship.

You go to Portmann.

I will go with Prokoff.

We will start in the main sector.

I will close all access to the loading bay.

If we can't find anything, We will review the rest.

The infirmary is clean.

What is your situation?

Nothing, until now.

We are at the gate.

There is something below us.

Let's check the bottom cover.

It seems we have it.

It must be in this conduit.

Well ... you go in there.

I will go the other way.

We'll kick his ass.

Once he realizes that I'm in front of him, will have to return.

When you see him, you shoot him.

And that will be it.

That bastard ... killed Yoshida and Lacroix.

Don't forget that.

... deto ... na ...

Everything grows back as it used to be.

They've been lying to us From the beginning.

These plants here ... they are edible.

These greenhouses keep outside the acid rain.

We purify our own water in underground tanks.

We are completely independent of the system.

And we continue to grow stronger.

More people join us every day.


Laura ...

Thank God you're alive.

Take it easy.

Where the hell were you We have everything under control.

We have it.

Did you shoot him Who?

Bruckner ...

What was your plan?

There is no point in playing the hero.

Bruckner is dead.

Who are you trying to protect?

Rhea ... it's a simulation, a lie.

The people in the tanks ...

It's rubbish.

Their brains are used as units neural to create the simulation.

We talk to people Rhea's all the time.

Kuiper is lying to him to all humanity.

Everything is undercover.

Get him out of here.

If people knew what parts of the Earth are habitable again ... the entire system would collapse.

You killed him, right?

He went crazy.

He killed Lacroix.

And Yoshida?

Move it.

How is your little patient?

All right.

I think we can move it to the load catch.


Prokoff and Vespucci will give you a hand.

Then we can finally close the load catch and ... you can return to the dream child.

I'll take care of your shift.

So, ... you know about Rhea ...

The simulation is only temporary ...

Rhea's colonization was a failure from the start.

Our changes to the planet's ecosystem they had unforeseeable consequences.

We will find another planet.

And we won't repeat the mistakes committed in Rhea.

But until then... people need something to keep them alive.

And that something is hope.

What happens to those who discover who live in a simulation?

The simulation is perfect ...

I was in it myself.

It is impossible for anyone to notice something.

Why are you doing all this?

You just don't get it.

We will soon be in Rhea.

But you and your ... spoiler ... they won't get there alive.

No one will worry about death of the Captain's assassins.

Did you know we were heading to Rhea?

But ... Rhea is a simulation ...

Who cares?

Better than staying on this piece of junk.

What about all my plants?

Idiot, there will be more plants you could dream of.

In Rhea, there is everything.


I couldn't tell you the truth.

Laura ... there are many reasons not to trust me ...

But we are the only ones who can complete this mission.

Will you help me?

Will you help me get me out sister over there?

We need two people to do this.

It is impossible to enter the simulation alone.

We will dock with the Station 42 as planned.

We can delay the procedures download for 30 minutes.

Then the Kassandra will download automatically.

Laura and I will be flying towards the station.

And enter the system right here.

How is that going to work?

The hardware needed to connect it's here in the connection modules.

I will connect Laura to the simulation here in the main module.

Once she is inside, will send a message to Earth.

In the meantime, I'll go find his sister's tank.

When we are ready we will blow up the main transponder antenna.

The station itself is maintained fully operational.

That means...

Everyone will continue to live in the simulation.

But they will no longer be able to send more messages.

Laura's message ... will be the last.

I hope people at home believe us.

Does Earth really is it habitable again?

We have had three expeditions.

Nature is rampant.

She is returning everything to its place.

Everything grows on the cities like on a second floor.

I will take Ariane back to Earth.

There are millions of tanks, Laura ...

Even if we did find her ...

I don't know what condition it will be in.

She has been in the simulation for a long time.

We have to try.

I want to show you the Earth.

Has your interface been used before?

No, it is a prototype.

It works as a connection neural for simulation.

Do not panic.

27 minutes.

You don't think we should ...


I'm doing this for you and for me. For both!

As if I was going to let it pass.

Let's get some guys out of their tanks and get into them.

Once the ship is unloaded, We will be in Rhea!



You do not hear me?

I have Lindbergh's card.

Reschedule download time for 10 minutes, do you have it?

Otherwise those two will return ... and the containers will not be downloaded ... and we won't be in Rhea, understand?

We have to hurry up. Let's meet at the shit stop, okay?

Decker? Can you hear me?

I have problems with my cell made out of fuel.

The cell is ...

... under no circumstances ... open ... door.

Rhea there we go!

... find ... cell ...

... found nothing ...

... going anyway ...

I don't think that's a good idea ...

...Where are you...

I'm trying to find Ariane's tank.

Laura ... ... copies ...?

Decker, can you hear me?


I can't control my boosters anymore!

I drift away!

Decker! Where are you?!

Decker ... where are you?

I see you.

I found Ariane's tank ...


I'm sorry.

I want to see.

Put the module for simulation from my sister.

I will send the message from there.

The Kassandra.

Prokoff and Vespucci ...

Those idiots.

That means we have at most 7 minutes ... then I will manually remove you.

In agreement.

Look how beautiful everything is here ...

You can finally see it for yourself.


And your room is also almost ready!

Beautiful lights.


I will show you everything.

Kids, look who's here!

Laura are you crying?

Ariane, I have to go for a minute.

What's going on?

I love you, Ariane.

Laura, where are you going?

My name is Laura Portmann.

This is the last message from Rhea.

Rhea is not paradise.

Rhea is a simulation.

We will give you proof.

We have all been betrayed.

Everything about Rhea is a lie.

We don't need Rhea.

Anyway, We still have Earth.

The Earth is habitable again.

No one will ever return to have contact with Rhea.

We are destroying antennas now.

You do not hear me?


Well, we must hurry up.

Kassandra can take off anytime... and you have to go back by yourself.

By myself?


I will not leave without you.

You have to do it.

We won't get far with a single impeller.

I have given you my fuel cell.

Have enough fuel to get to Kassandra.

I will not leave without you.

Go back to the girl.

She is our only test.


I can not!

If you can.

Do not...

I love you.

Where's the girl?

No one will be able to send messages from Rhea now.

My name is Laura Portmann.

This is the last message from Rhea.

Rhea is not paradise.

Rhea is a simulation.

We will bring you evidence.

We have all been betrayed.

We don't need Rhea.

Anyway, We still have Earth.

The Earth is habitable again.

No one will ever return to have contact with Rhea.

We are destroying antennas now.
