Mia is the newest member of a crew which explores and restores old buildings in outer space. As she grows close to her new group of friends and visits sites throughout the universe, she reflects on her experiences four years previous in boarding school where she fell in love with a girl named Grace. After Grace is mysteriously whisked away by her family, Mia is determined to reunite with her even if she must travel to the outlawed sector of space, the staircase. When Mia opens up to her new friends on the crew, they are determined to help her find Grace even if it means risking their lives. As they navigate the staircase looking for her, they are each challenged by their separate discoveries and, against all odds, are reunited.
