In a not too distant future post-apocalyptic world, the air is toxic to breathe, oxygen levels hover not much above 20% and oxygen itself has become a precious commodity.

It is a world in which we glimpse the kind of consequences that could arise from our present actions and decisions.



It is across this bleak and terrifying landscape that a silent young boy sets off on a perilous mission to obtain water and medicine for his ailing bedridden mother. 



With just his toy robot as a companion and guide on his journey;


What kind of obstacles will he be forced to face?

What dangers will threaten him along the way?
What choices will he have to make?
What awaits him if he makes it home?


Find out the answers to these questions when you watch the short film, The Survivor – A Tale from The Nearscape: deemed "Best Sci-Fi" by jurors at the recent Festigious International Film Festival!
