A super-soldier is hired by a corporation to track down a deadly, yet mysterious adversary.
A soldier’s widow desperately searches for her husband’s body and is forced to solicit help from a bio-engineered warrior who is somehow connected to his death.
Downward is a story of loss and forgiveness, a drama masked within a sci-fi film. Themes of death and warfare are explored within the context of grief. The film hints at the additional hope of a brighter future after loss and perhaps, new love.
The film focuses on Claire, the wife of a human soldier who enlisted to fight alongside the Dragoons. When he is killed in a skirmish by insurgents, Claire is informed that his body is unrecoverable due to its location. Unwilling to accept this she desperately searches for a way to find his remains, even going so far as to enlist the help of a Dragoon to guide her through the warzone to the location of the battle.
