A comedic journey of cosmic discovery.

When you look up, do you marvel at your place among the stars or feel too small to matter? These are the voyages of Karl and Lucy, two college kids who boldly go on a mission through worlds of subatomic particles and Star Trek to seek out which parts of us can survive against the cosmic backdrops of loss and loneliness.


Cast: Paul Lockwood, James Knight, Rachael Proulx, Ella Raymont, & Thomas Squires
