Description: In this film, a space mission goes terribly awry and astronaut Spencer Armacost is rushed back to Earth and revived. Honored as an American hero, he quits his job to start a family with his wife Jillian. When they discover she is pregnant, the couple tries to put the tragedy in space behind them. After several puzzling events, Jillian begins to have doubts about her husband, suspecting he's not the same man she married. Did something happen in space that caused Spencer to change, or is Jillian experiencing a relapse of a previous depression? Are Jillian and her unborn twins in danger from her husband, or is Jillian's prenatal paranoia a threat to Spencer and the babies?
