In Elizabeth Bonesteel’s original story, a father’s dangerous mission to save his son isn’t what it really seems: An emotional story emerges, which utilizes virtual reality for palliative care.

The Verge called us to adapt, produce and direct this script into a 3 minutes short animation film for “Better Worlds”, a science fiction project about hope. Overlay was the last episode of the series. We created a cinematic approach based on the classics of dystopian sci-fi movies in cel animation.
