From Dolby:

In Escape, a lone space explorer crash-lands on a desolate planet and must find a way to make her new home habitable… This intrepid character displays courage, passion, determination, and curiosity as she transforms the barren landscape she has found into a beautiful planet, and reunites with her family.
