Playography is currently undergoing an essential rebuild, technical update and maintenance. All updates are on hold until the rebuild is complete. We are continuing to work hard in the background and are still accepting submissions which will be complete in Autumn 2023. For more information visit ITI's website.

  • Synopsis

    A lone astronaut hurtles through the cosmos on a one-way mission to the edge of the universe. She’s looking for a light in the dark. Traversing time and space, isolation and uncertainty, her quest to find hope will bring her to the brink of the abyss. A star-bound journey that looks at the stories we tell ourselves when we feel most alone.
