A short sci-fi/drama of a woman searching for her missing partner, and the subsequent reconnection in his subconscious.

Arriving distressed at her local police station, Emily files a missing person’s report for her partner Connor, who has been missing for days. Faced with the realisation that she is partially responsible for his disappearance, Emily sets out on her own investigative journey.

Later discovering a hidden warehouse, Emily finds Connor connected to a system of unregulated equipment, designed and operated by Lenny. Confused – and unable to speak with Connor directly – Emily connects to his mind, where she is transported to a desolate landscape. But before she can reconnect with her partner and find the answers she’s looking for, she must traverse the physical barrier between them.
