Forever’s Not So Long from garrettmurray on Vimeo.

Done? Good.

This is one of my favorite modes of Speculative Fiction. The kind that doesn’t need lasers or robots or magic or anything but a single What If used to interrogate the human condition. With hours left to live, two strangers set aside panic and walk hand-in-hand along a path they both know is painfully short, carrying on with life, making a connection they almost invariably wouldn’t have made if not for the impending apocalypse.

Because at the end of the day, it’s all about making connections, sharing experiences, bringing joy into one another’s lives, brief though they may be.
