The Global Lottery

2020, 20 minutes

A short sci-fi that follows the remaining week of a young girls life as she struggles to come to terms with her premature demise.

Set in a world not dissimilar to our own, except for one thing: critical over-population has lead to the creation of an algorithm which, upon reaching their 18th birthday, allocates each person on the planet a random amount of time left to live. Most people get years, decades, a lifetime… but when Eve reaches her day of reckoning, she finds she has only seven days left to live. The film follows her final days and her struggle to find meaning in the time she has left.
