Jonah is a peacemaker of high regard and many years of loyal service, but when his last mission is to give aid to a planet of people he believes war thirsty and beyond forgiveness, he goes AWOL. Stowed away on-board an old asteroid mining vessel Jonah barters passage with the all-female crew of X-cons but he doesn't get far before the ship hits a freak solar storm. The suspicious crew turn on each other believing one of them carries a curse causing their misfortune. Written by Aurora Fearnley

the guilt
12 May 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A dark , poetic short Sci. Fi. A Peacemaker. A ship. A mission refused for humanitarian motives. And a fake solar storm. The sacrifice. A new beginning. Fascinating close ups, good performances, eerie atmosphere, inspired storytelling and a smart game of states. Nothing significant, at the first sigh but a beautiful work.
