Version 4.3.2

With humanity on the brink of extinction, people created robots to protect human history and ensure a legacy for those that may later find this planet. In this bleak world; Avery, a robot designer, discovered a love and ability for music. The threat of her genius to generate what she is only tasked to preserve is too great for Rehan, the man that created her. She is charged to completely rid herself of this newfound knowledge in order to continue to exist and serve the robots’ greater intended purpose as a mere custodian of art and culture. The main thrust of this palindromic film is a backwards journey, through answer & question, to the dream that birthed a world of new potential for Avery. The story expresses itself through Tamil, the oldest living language and English, the vehicular language of the future. It begins (…or ends) with Rehan drowning himself out of the guilt of extinguishing Avery's life and beautiful talent.
