Film Synopsis

In a hypothetical intergalactic journey we could not recognize any constellation, the mapping of the celestial sphere is nothing but a vice of the gaze. The proximity close to any star we would identify others, visible only from this new perspective: the sighting. 

To the keen eye, pixels are stars and everything is possessed.
