Opportunity, the veteran interplanetary Mars Exploration Rover, was affectionately dubbed Oppy by her creators and scientists at NASA. Originally expected to live for only 90 days, Oppy ultimately explored Mars for nearly 15 years. The film follows Oppy's groundbreaking journey on Mars and the remarkable bond forged between a robot and her humans millions of miles away.
