The Flatliner recounts a harrowing story of a near death experience. The young woman in the narrative describes a fatal overdose and the hellish visions she encountered upon her death. This is a tale of the finality of death but also the hope and rebirth in second chances.
INTO SHADOW presents eight stories of transcendence, despair, and visions of life after death. Through re-creations and survivor stories, we are offered a glimpse into life on the edge of existence. One man recounts his out of body experience during a violent car crash. Another man seeks God through the handling of deadly serpents. A young woman tells of her encounter with a dangerous stalker while sleepwalking. Another woman remembers a vision of hell during a fatal overdose. A Street Artist recounts life with a psychic brother. Two men tell of life in the water, one seeks peace through isolation, and another remembers an ocean drowning during a stormy ocean dive.
