But when he begins experiencing waking nightmares, each more bizarre than the one before, he starts to suspect that his doctors aren’t working to help him restore his memory at all.

Directed by Tyson Persall; Produced by Cary Martin, Tyson Persall

Life Life in in Space Space is a concept TV show/short film that is about fanciful characters in space working together and getting along despite radical differences. It centers on the themes of tolerance and “don’t judge a book by its cover.” Some people have said, “It’s like Space Balls for the 90’s.” The truth is, political correctness on a space ship—an isolated place—is probably a horrible idea in all practicality.
