Planet Vega, a breathtaking world of unparalleled beauty…

10-year old Abner dreams of nothing more than exploring the entire universe as he gazes up at Vega’s majestic Twilight sky. But those dreams are far from realistic - He and his father Elias live a humble, nomadic lifestyle on the endless desert-scapes of Vega.

But miles away there is another Vega, a state controlled Vega, separate from the colonies. A Vega that is home only to an Elite class to have built a technological Empire that is unexcelled in the universe. This is a world Elias fears, a world he has kept Secret from Abner all these years. But he can only shepherd his son for so long…

This uncompromising short Sci-Fi drama fuses two distant worlds in a hallucinogenic roller-coaster ride through the darkest chasms of the mind.
