A group of criminals serving death sentences are sent on a mission in space to extract alternative energy from a black hole. Each prisoner is treated as a guinea pig by Dr. Dibs (Juliette Binoche), who is fixated on creating a child through artificial insemination, but has yet to find success. Sexual activity between prisoners is prohibited. The ship is equipped with "The Box," a device obsessively used by the crew to masturbate. Dibs murdered her own children and husband before attempting suicide. Monte (Robert Pattinson), the only celibate prisoner, rejects Dibs' sexual advances. Monte is serving a life sentence for killing a friend for murdering his dog as a child. Monte's only friend on the ship is Tcherny (André Benjamin), who is drawn to the onboard garden because it reminds him of Earth.
Pregnant prisoner Elektra (Gloria Obianyo) delivers a baby, but it dies, and later she does as well. The captain, Chandra (Lars Eidinger), develops leukemia due to radiation and has a stroke before being euthanized by Dibs. One night, male prisoner Ettore (Ewan Mitchell) binds a female prisoner named Boyse (Mia Goth) and her roommate Mink (Claire Tran) to their beds and attempts to rape Boyse. Nansen (Agata Buzek), the pilot, intervenes, but Ettore attacks and overpowers her. Monte arrives, throws Ettore off Boyse, and beats him. When Monte leads Boyse away to be treated, Mink stabs Ettore to death in the hallway. Dibs begins doubling the amount of sedatives each prisoner receives, later sneaking into Monte's cell and raping him while he is sedated. She then injects his semen into Boyse, who produces a healthy child that Dibs dotes on, but Monte is unaware that he is the baby's father.
