Based on the 1956 Swedish science fiction poem of the same name by Harry Martinson, Aniara is the story of one of the many spaceships used for transporting Earth’s fleeing population to their new home-planet Mars.

But just as the ship leaves the destroyed Earth, she collides with space junk and is thrown off her course. The passengers slowly realize that they’ll never be able to return. Mimaroben (Emelie Jonsson, TV’s Gentlemen & Gangsters), leads a room where a sentient computer allows humans to experience near-spiritual memories of the Earth. As the ship drifts further into the endless void more and more passengers are in need of her services. Pressure builds on Mimaroben as she is the only one who can keep the growing insanity and lethal depression at bay…
