An astronaut becomes stranded on Mars after his team assume him dead, and must rely on his ingenuity to find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive.

As shown at the beginning of the movie, the dust storm that "killed" Mark Watney was on Sol 18 (the 18th Martian day of the ground mission). Later when Mark finds the potatoes that he grows and relies upon for survival, they are in a container that has "Do Not Touch Until Thanksgiving" handwritten on the top, it being a team building exercise for the crew to prepare a meal together on that day.
Unfortunately as shown elsewhere and in the Movies advertising materials, surface operations starts on Nov' 8th 2035, which makes SOL 18 at least the 26th of November which is 4 days after Thanksgiving by which time all the potatoes should have been eaten.
Disco music, which had been a running gag throughout the film, is played during the ending credits. Appropriately, the first song played is "I Will Survive," which features the lyric "And so you're back, from outer space."
