02 - Bullets and Time
Marcus wonders at the brevity of life, and questions the truth of this surreal world as he gains insights into the powers his current state grants him. Choosing a moment from his son Aiden’s life, he dives in. In a faux-apocalypse awash with broken, desperate people, solar flares lap at what might be the last night Aiden has left to share with his comatose wife. A drunken encounter with a grieving parent on a mission to find a cursed gun leads Aiden to wonder if he is holding on to something he no longer possesses; something that no longer exists. *Content Warning: Contains depictions of violence, death, miscarriage, sexual harassment, and homophobia.
