Five-hundred years in the future, the crew of the transport-for-hire ship Serenity takes on two new passengers and soon find themselves in a crossfire between an invincible military force and cannibalistic savages.
Oscar and Emmy-nominated writer/director Joss Whedon--creator of the worldwide television phenomena of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel and co-writer of Toy Story--makes his feature film directorial debut with the futuristic action-adventure Serenity, based on Whedon's cult television series Firefly.
Captain Malcolm Reynolds, a hardened veteran who fought on the losing side of a galactic civil war, now ekes out a living pulling off small crimes and transporting passengers and cargo (without asking too many questions) on the Firefly class ship Serenity. He leads a small, eclectic crew who are the closest thing he has left to family--squabbling, insubordinate, and undyingly loyal.
When Mal agrees to transport a young doctor and his unstable, telepathic sister, he gets much more than he bargained for. The pair are fugitives from The Alliance--the coalition dominating the galaxy--who will stop at nothing to reclaim the girl. The crew that was once used to skimming the outskirts of the galaxy unnoticed suddenly finds itself caught between this unstoppable military force and Reavers--barbaric savages who roam the edges of space.
Hunted by vastly different, equally deadly enemies, they soon begin to discover that the greatest danger to their safety may be onboard the Serenity herself...
