Challenge is a film about a doctor who is briefly sent to the International Space Station to save the life of an astronaut. The filmmakers expressed the hope that they would be able to portray weightlessness in a different way and, with the skills of a professional actor, demonstrate the feeling of floating freely and watching the earth from space.
