review by
Mike Haberfelner

Outer space, the future: Kaidan (Aleks Paunovic) is an interplanetary cargo hauler who only just gets by - and it's breaking his heart as he'd so like to send his daughter Zohra (Ishana Bala), who accompanies him on all his journeys, to a good college, something which he simply cannot afford. And then his ship breaks down on a nondescript space station, and he's out of money to even pay for repairs - and even if he sold what's essentially a scrap heap, it wouldn't get him and Zorah far. Enter Etienne (Omari Newton), an eloquent businessman who makes him an offer he cannot refuse - but Kaidan refuses anyhow, as the deal would include shipping a load of slaves throught he galaxy, something his moral standards won't allow. But of course, Etienne has power on the space station, and he drives Kaidan into a corner until he simply cannot refuse any longer without serious consequences, even if Zorah doesn't approve one bit. And to assure that the slaves are indeed delivered as promised, Etienne sends his right hand man Rotik (Robert Maillet), a brutish giant, along with Kaidan to watch over things. Suffice to say, the two men don't get along, but things come to a head when they're hailed by an inspection ship and Rotik intends to abandon their live cargo in outer space to simply evade arrest, something that's really too much for Kaidan - but what are the alternatives, and is Rotik a man to reason with?

 

A very impressive short, as it on one hand features some jaw-dropping visuals that put it on par with big budget Hollywood productions, but on the other tells a story with much heart that's not overpowered by all the special effects wizardry, on the contrary the visuals actually serve the plot here. That's thanks to a directorial effort that never forgets the human factor in its narrative, which puts it lightyears ahead of many a blockbuster. And of course, a strong cast also help make this a pretty awesome experience.
