LUMINOUS tells the story of the first astronomer in history to publicly predict the near-future explosion of a star–will he be right? Others in the astronomical community are skeptical, and professional reputations hang in the balance.

In production for five years, LUMINOUS follows Larry Molnar’s dramatic journey to test his unprecedented prediction, knowing that its success or failure will unfold squarely in the international spotlight.
