Synopsis: Is there just existence, and then nothing? Life is a futile endeavour. First the life goes and then the memories of the life go. To people, to species, to nations. We must acknowledge the futility of life while deciding to choosing love. Is it possible? When facing the apocalyptic chasm of extinction we respond by creating beauty. This, in spite of the impermanence of life and the permanence of death. The ancient quality of the landscape and the fleeting nature of existence is juxtaposed by a technological angle. The progress of science. An "instantaneous death in a series of equations".
