This is my lo-fi/sci-fi take on Australian author Greg Egan's short story 'Axiomatic'. There will be some Greg Egan fans that notice huge differences in this film compared to the original story namely; Mark Carver is now Marissa Carver and the fact that Amy appears and is an essential character.
The reason for this was that I wanted to focus on the potential their relationship held, taking a chance in exploring those intimate moments between two people deeply in love who are building a life together, and then the aftermath from the choices made when that love is taken away. And I just thought it would be great to have a strong female in the lead roll.
A huge thank you to Greg Egan for not placing restrictions of any kind on this project which allowed me total creative freedom to make a film that I'm very proud of. I hope you enjoy it.
