Tom Cruise is a human (or is he) miner extracting the planets resources when he discovers there is more to his surrounding than he ever knew.
Ever see any Sci-fi ever? There is probably some element of whatever movie you just thought of in this one. Oblivion could be criticised for having story elements and concepts from many sci-fi classics; 2001, Moon, Ex-Machina. But somehow the movie seems do pull this together respectfully. This film flams episode turned me around on this movie. While performing the commentary I decided that I actually liked this love letter to sci-fi.
