But Hals humanity is one weapon no member of the Corps has ever had, and if with willpower, determination and the encouragement of fellow pilot and childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris (Lively) Hal can quickly master his new powers and find the courage to overcome his fears, he may prove to be not only the key to defeating Parallax… he will save the Earth and all of mankind from certain destruction.
