Serenity

When Mal takes on two new passengers--a young doctor, Simon Tam and his unstable, telepathic sister, River Tam -- he gets much more than he bargained for. The pair are fugitives from the coalition dominating the universe, the Alliance, who will stop at nothing to reclaim the girl.

A year ago, Simon busted River from a top secret Alliance government facility that were performing horrible experiments on her. Trying to turn her into the ulimante military weapon.

The crew that was once used to skimming the outskirts of the galaxy unnoticed find themselves caught between the unstoppable military force of the Universal Alliance and the horrific, cannibalistic fury of the Reavers, savages who roam the very edge of space.

Continuity mistake: When the cast are at the Miranda colony and discover that everyone is dead, there is a rotating shot of River as she realises what happened. Prior to this there is a brief closeup shot of the rest of the cast as they turn to face her. Jayne turns to his right, but in the following rotating shot of River he has turned from his left.
