Happy Birthday

Production /

An astronaut is sent on a mission to shut down the computer network on a destroyed mining colony, but on the way he discovers that there is a lone survivor on the planet. Is she a human, or a machine come to life?

Inspired by Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness, Happy Birthday takes the story of a steamboat headed into the deepest jungle, and translates it into the farthest reaches of the solar system.
