In a not-so-distant future, cereal species are getting extinct one by one by the blight, and sand storm happen regularly. Cooper, an ex-astronaut and now farmer decodes a message appearing in his daughter Murphy's room as gravitational anomalies, leading him to what is left of NASA. Scientists there work in parallel on anti-gravity and on sending manned exploratory probes through a wormhole that had appeared near Staturn fifty years earlier; plan A is to make space stations and take humanity away from the surface into space and plan B is to send frozen embryo to a suitable planet in the other galaxy. Cooper is asked to travel through the wormhole to another galaxy, finding out what happened to the three probes that are still emitting pings back to Earth. Cooper leaves his children in the care of their grandfather, knowing that because of relativity, they will age much faster than he will. In the other galaxy, they have three planets to visit. On the first one, there is only the wreckage of the probe, destroyed by gigantic waves and barely escape with their lives, losing one crew member. On the second planet, they find a survivor ,Mann, who tries to kill them to take their ship and escape back to Earth. Cooper learns from him that he had faked the data about the planet (it's not inhabitable) to attract rescuers and that anti-gravity cannot be discovered without measurements taken from the inside of a black hole, and that plan A is just a scam to get people working while plan B is applied. Cooper and Brand manage to escape from the planet and save their orbiter from Mann's wrong docking maneuvres that almost destroyed it. They then split, Brand going to the third planet while Cooper jumps into the black hole. He discovers there an environment when he can survive, showing a 2-dimension view to his daughter's room and where he can travel time as a dimension of space. He then understands he can send messages by generating gravitational anomalies. He also sends the measurements taken from inside the blackhole by his robot sidekick, leading his daughter to discover anti-gravity. His environment then collapses and he's spit out of the wormhole. He eventually wakes up in a space station years later, seing his now elderly daughter for the last time. She convices him to go back and search for Brand, who is implementing plan B on the last planet (that happens to be habitable).
