Tomasz Popakul
Poland 2016 / 14’

A pair of astronauts, trapped on a space station by a nuclear war that unexpectedly broke out on Earth, have lost touch with the mother planet, are running out of supplies, and nearly all attempts to make contact have been futile. All that is left to do is watch the mushroom clouds on Earth and somehow try to survive.
