HIGH LIFE


SYNOPSIS
Deep space. Beyond our solar system. Monte and his infant daughter Willow live together aboard a spacecraft, in complete isolation. A solitary man, whose strict self-discipline is a protection against desire – his own and that of others. He was member of a crew of prisoners: space convicts, death row inmates. Guinea pigs sent on a mission to the black hole closest to Earth. Together, alone, father and daughter approach their destination – the black hole in which all time and space cease to exist.
