SORT SOL short fiction | GER 2018 | dffb | 30´ 

Once upon a time ... in the year of 2083: Nate lives in an efficient but dreary future in which people have become nothing more than work machines for Cormick Inc. Mysterious calls pull Nate out of his comfort zone and start haunting him. As he, bit by bit, is cast out of society, his frightening visions take over and bring him back to a world he has forgotten.
