An old woman named Murph addresses the camera and says her father was a farmer like almost everybody else was at the time

but he did not start off this way

Her father Cooper was a pilot, as we see him in a craft of his own

We also see Murph as a child going into Cooper’s room, asking him if he was dreaming about a crash

Murph thinks there is a ghost in the house, which Cooper doesn’t believe in

We see clips of elderly people talking about the area they lived in, which was made up of crops and cornfields

Cooper also lives with his 15-year-old son Tom and father-in-law Donald

Murph brings in a piece of Cooper’s craft to the table during breakfast

Cooper drives the kids to school to drop them off

but also to meet with Murph’s teacher

He lets Murph handle the truck, and they end up getting a flat tire on the road

Tom teases Murph and calls her “Murphy’s Law”

Cooper gets out to change the tire when a drone flies overhead

He hops back in the truck and drives through the cornfield to chase after it

They follow it toward the edge of a hill near a lake

Cooper then gets out a device that controls the drone, which he lets Murph try out

Cooper meets with the kids’ school principal and Murph’s teacher Mrs. Kelly

The principal shows Cooper Tom’s test grades

and says he’ll make a great farmer, though Cooper says Tom could make a great engineer, even if the results don’t seem to suggest this

Mrs. Kelly shows Cooper a textbook that Murph brought in to show the other kids

This federal textbook is forbidden in the school since they use textbooks

that say the Apollo missions were faked to bankrupt the Soviets

Cooper isn’t happy with what his daughter is being taught

and he mentions that if his wife hadn’t passed away, she would be there and would be calmer about this

Murph ends up getting suspended

Cooper is called home to find a bunch of tractors around the crops

There appears to be something wrong with the food supply

The next day, the family goes to a baseball game

Donald complains that they serve popcorn at the place instead of hot dogs

The crowd then sees that a huge dust storm is happening

Cooper drives the family home with protective masks

Murph realizes the window in her room is open, so she and Cooper run upstairs to shut it

On the floor are thick and thin parallel lines across the floor made out of the dust

Cooper analyzes them and determines they are coordinates

Cooper drives to the facility that the coordinates lead to, with Murph stowing away in the truck

He gets out bolt cutters to go through the fence, only for a robot TARS, to show up and apprehend Cooper

Cooper is interrogated by TARS until Dr. Amelia Brand comes in

She brings Cooper to a room with other scientists, with Murph sitting among them

Leading the group is Amelia’s father, Professor Brand, along with fellow scientists Doyle and Romilly

They identify themselves as being part of NASA

Professor Brand explains the situation, which is that the Earth’s crops and food supply are slowly dying off

and the planned mission is to find a new home in the universe to sustain human life, as there may be no hope to save the planet

Several astronauts before them, led by the famed Dr. Mann, went on what is called the Lazarus Missions prior to the rest of the group to find a new world

Romilly explains that a wormhole has been discovered

that can lead them to a new galaxy with a chance to explore a new world for human life

This is their Plan A

Plan B would involve rebuilding life through fertilized embryos that would replace a human life

Cooper disagrees with this plan, so he agrees to Plan A

Murph is not happy with him and she storms up to her room when they get home

Cooper tries to comfort Murph in her room, but she is too angry to listen

She says that she deciphered a message from the books falling off her shelf in Morse code that says, “Stay”

Cooper promises to return home, though he doesn’t know when

He gives Murph his watch but she throws it against her bookshelf

Before Cooper leaves, a couple of books fall off the shelf

Cooper drives to the station in his truck as Donald and Tom see him off

Murph is too late to say goodbye

Cooper looks in the passenger seat in the hope that Murph possibly stowed away again

but she is not there

and His eyes fill up with tears

Cooper, Amelia, Doyle, and Romilly blast off into space to begin their mission to Mars and then Saturn, along with TARS and the ship’s computer CASE

They dock their shuttle onto the space module Endurance

Romilly and Doyle put themselves in hypersleep

Back on Earth, Professor Brand brings Cooper’s truck back for Tom to use

He also tells Donald and Murph that they can send messages that will be transmitted to Cooper, but Murph is still mad

The astronauts soar through the wormhole, passing through the cosmos and stars and infinite space

They know that time passes differently for them on these planets due to the different gravitational pull

One hour out there amounts to bout seven years on Earth

Taking that into account, Cooper knows that it’s crucial that they find a way to complete the mission

without wasting what could be a decade for the people on Earth

He makes a plan to go around the black hole Gargantua

to what he and the others refer to as “Miller’s planet”

The team lands on Miller’s planet, which is set upon a seemingly endless body of water

Romilly stays in the craft while Cooper, Amelia, Doyle, and TARS set out

They find a wrecked beacon in the water

belonging to Miller whose body is nowhere to be found

From the distance, Amelia thinks she sees mountains when it is actually a colossal wave headed toward them

Amelia tries to salvage the beacon as Cooper orders her to return to the craft

Doyle is killed by a wave of water while the others make it back inside

There, Romilly has aged 23 years

Amelia realizes that Miller was probably there hours ago and died minutes before they got to the planet

There is also a number of video messages in the craft that were sent to Cooper

Most of them are from Tom

It starts with Tom in his current age saying that he misses his dad and that he’s met a girl named Lois

The messages then show Tom as an adult

He has married Lois and they have a baby named Jesse

Cooper is overwhelmed with emotion and he starts crying

Another video message shows Tom looking forlorn, as something has happened to Jesse

He also mentions that Donald has passed away

The last message is from a now adult Murph

She is at the age when Cooper left and promised to return

She starts to weep, making Cooper even more emotional

Presently, Murph is working with Brand at NASA to finish the equation

which he’s been working on that would figure out how humans can escape Earth’s gravitational pull

She still harbors some resentment toward her father for leaving her

Cooper, Amelia, and Romilly are sitting together trying to figure out which planet they should head to next, Edmunds or Mann

From their discussion, Cooper learns that Amelia is in love with a fellow scientist named Wolf Edmunds, for whom one of the planets is named

She hopes to be able to see him again soon, and she states that love is the one thing that transcends time and space

Murph goes to the hospital where her partner Getty directs her to Brand’s room

He is dying

When Murph expresses hope for the mission’s success, Brand admits that he solved his equation long ago

but was missing data from a singularity behind a black hole for it to be complete, so he puts what little faith he has left in Plan B

With his dying breaths, he crushes Murph’s hope

After he passes, Murph sends a video message to Amelia to inform her of her father’s death

The astronauts come across an icy planet with frozen clouds

There is another craft on the surface with a pod inside

Another person is in hypersleep – Dr. Mann.

He awakens and sees Cooper, and he gets overwhelmed to see another human again, bringing him to cry in Cooper’s arms

Afterward, Mann explains the environment of the planet to the team, stating there are 67 hours in the day and another 67 at night, as well as the icy conditions

The team then receives Murph’s message to Amelia, which also addresses Cooper

Murph asks if both Cooper and Amelia knew that the mission was a sham and that Cooper simply abandoned his family

Amelia is just as shocked to hear this, and Mann admits that he has considered the mission to be a failure

Amelia begins to cry

Murph has dinner at the old family home where Tom lives with his family

He and Lois have another son named Coop

Coop and Lois suffer from a cough that is attributed to the conditions of the area

Tom seems to be ignoring the problem and refuses to take his family out of there

Cooper and Mann go out to navigate the planet together while Romilly and Amelia stay behind

Here, Mann turns on Cooper and removes his emergency oxygen pack before pushing him over the edge of a hill

It’s revealed that he forged data of the viability of the planet so he could be found and saved

Since he has considered Plan A a failure, Mann opts for Plan B,

and knowing that nobody can survive on this planet, he leaves Cooper to die

Cooper fights back, only for Mann to crack Cooper’s visor by slamming his head against it

Mann escapes while Cooper tries to contact Amelia for help

Mann ends up killing Romilly by blowing up his station while Amelia rushes to Cooper’s aid

They pick up TARS and fly after Mann

Getty tries to help Coop with his cough, but Tom doesn’t want his or Murph’s help, and he punches Getty in the face

He and Murph leave, following other vans that are evacuating the area as another dust storm starts forming

Murph then drives into the cornfields and douses it with gas before lighting it up with a flare

to persuade Tom and his family to leave

Cooper and Amelia find Mann trying to dock his shuttle with Endurance in space

but he cannot as he hasn’t secured the airlock

Amelia tries to warn him that the shuttle will depressurize, but it is too late and causing an explosion that kills Mann

Cooper manages to get Endurance back under control with the help of TARS

He and Amelia then plan to use the robot to gather data on the singularity behind Gargantua and then chart a course to Edmunds’ planet

Knowing that they have a limited energy and oxygen supply with them

Cooper and Amelia try to make it home carefully

However, Cooper separates himself from Amelia to let her go on without him

Cooper ends up falling through what looks like another wormhole

it puts him in an odd dimension of sorts

He hears the voice of TARS speaking to him

Cooper floats against what looks like a wall

He peeks through it and sees Murph as a child

He is looking at her through her bookcase

Cooper calls out to her and starts pushing the books

TARS explains that he has stumbled upon a new dimension relative to time, space, gravity and that the beings that invented this dimension led Cooper to find this place

They know humans couldn’t have created this just yet, but soon enough

Cooper sees himself on the day that he left Murph, and he yells at himself to stay

He notices the watch he left Murph sitting on the bookshelf

and he taps his fingers against the lining of the dimension to try

and communicate with Adult Murph through the hands on the watch

Adult Murph is still trying to get Tom’s family out of the house while the fire in the cornfields is being extinguished

Now, both Cooper and Murph realize that Cooper was the “ghost” in Murph’s room

and he was the one that left the message in Morse code for Murph that read, “Stay”

Adult Murph then figures out that her father is communicating with her

This gives her what she needs to solve Brand’s equation and to save mankind

She goes to the research facility, gathers all the papers she once worked on and throws them into the air before excitedly kissing Getty

Cooper, meanwhile, falls through the dimension and drifts through space before blacking out

Cooper awakens in a medical station

The doctor tells him to relax and take it slow

as he is now 124 years old

Cooper walks to the window and sees kids playing baseball when the batter hits the ball and it goes through the window of a house

a house that is directly above the playing field

The doctor says they are in Cooper Station over Saturn

Cooper thinks it’s named after him, but it’s named after Murph

The doctor says she’ll be arriving in a few weeks

Cooper is given the remains of TARS and is brought to his old home

He works on him and reprograms his settings, making him more honest and slightly more humorous

Cooper gathers with his great-grandchildren at the hospital to be reunited with Old Murph as she lay in bed surrounded by her family

She is happy to see her father, who has fulfilled his promise to return to her

Knowing that her time is short, she encourages Cooper to continue living and sharing his life with someone

She tells him to find Amelia, who is lost and setting up camp somewhere out there

Amelia is shown on Edmunds’ planet putting Plan B into effect

trying to rebuild a community with the smaller organisms and unaware of what has happened with humanity

Cooper decides to follow Murph’s advice and seek out Amelia himself.
