HOW TO LIVE ON EARTH tells the stories of Omar, Eleanor, Aggie and Bill — four would-be settlers of Mars who yearn to be part of a one-way mission to the red planet. As the applicants compete, they are forced to reckon with the cost of their dream, especially for the loved ones they would be leaving behind. At a time when environmental and political catastrophe looms large, and our technological capabilities grow stronger and stronger, HOW TO LIVE ON EARTH asks us what it really means to go and what it means to stay.
