Powerful short film, which explores human existence at the most fundamental, personal level – what it means to be a conscious individual. Set hundreds of years in the future, a derelict spacecraft, controlled and powered by a human brain, floats aimlessly in the outer reaches of space. Trapped in the cold, mechanical prison of the vessel, the brain, which has no recollection or concept of self, miraculously begins to experience disjointed images of its former life – images it cannot understand.

Maybe then it will understand the images it is seeing – maybe then it will feel alive.
