A great short - as a think piece and as an entertaining dystopian but realistic sci-fi film
7 April 2012 | by (Santa Cruz, California) – See all my reviews

Excellent - very compact yet filled with meaty material feeding deep reflection on some of our greatest social issues today (but projected decades into the future). It was meaty enough that the film felt considerably longer than its actual 21 minutes (in a good way, not as something you want to end sooner :) Left me hungry for a continuation!

Fascinating way to envision today's social issues and trends - projecting them decades into possible future states. This episode dives deeply into the possible future of equality issues - gender, single mothers, economic, racial, generational, age, access to educational and employment opportunities, access to new technologies and treatments, ...

For a low budget short, this film has remarkable directing, acting, and production quality. Highly recommended as a "think piece" that is also entertaining as a dystopian but realistic short sci-fi flick.
