Named for the famous photograph of Earth taken by the Voyager 1 in 1990, “Pale Blue Dot” centers on a married astronaut (Portman) who returns to Earth after a mission and begins an affair with a fellow astronaut (Hamm). She heads into a downward spiral as she loses her connection to her family — a condition that can afflict those who spend a long time in space — and when her lover beings another affair with an astronaut trainee, the bottom drops out.
