“It would be abnormal if someone didn't die.
You know, that would be very strange.
We’d pay a lot of attention, I think, if that happened.”
Five people lie on a Welsh beach, moving through fantasy, memory and reality as they process the most profound yet ordinary of experiences: nearing the end of life.
As they describe moments from their lives, dig into their present experience and reflect on what the future has in store, we are taken on a rollercoaster ride of the human imagination… and transported all the way to the brink; as far as the eye can see.
‘Like a 3D virtual reality documentary.’
