A short-to-feature film by Natalia Iyudin

When in 2089 humans become an out-of-date concept, the only way to survive is to integrate into A.I. constructs. Yet Luc—a rebellious ballerina—would rather die than conform. But when she meets an odd robot Azul, the idea of integrating into a better version of herself suddenly sounds tempting.

Welcome to the Garden. Inside you grow, outside you perish.
