Director's statement
"Throughout my career I’ve been trying to find a sci-fi idea that grabs me, is fun as well as exciting. I’d almost given up hope when one day I saw the play Vial by Henrik Ståhl. There and then, I knew that it would be possible to make a cool and fun, but at the same time memorable and important, space film".
