King Peak of the planet Taylor sends his teenage son Merit to the neighboring desert world to settle a territory dispute with its monarchy; however, the oddities of space and reality soon begin to complicate his mission.
This film is a mixture of medieval and sci-fi, with elements of both melding together in a mysterious, brooding melange. It explores themes of fate, familial betrayal, desolation, and humanity.
Though you can certainly draw parallels to the Plight of Steel, this film is definitely unique. Inspired by the likes of Dune and 2001: A Space Odyssey, this film will draw you in with a feeling of existential dread that slowly creeps into your mind, then shock you with the typical writing tropes and styles I like to use.
