Cooper, an ex-science engineer and pilot, is tethered to his farming property in the near future around the American Midwest with his daughter Murph and son Tom. As deadly sandstorms damage Earth’s crops, the inhabitants of Earth know their time on Earth is drawing to a close as food runs out. After stumbling onto an N.A.S.A. base near Cooper’s home, he is requested to join a dangerous trip inside a wormhole with a few other scientists due to Cooper’s scientific intellect and skill to pilot airplanes unlike the other crew members. Cooper must decide whether to stay or risk never seeing his children again in order to save the human race by finding another livable planet while Earth decays.
