Synopsis

Since the death of his father, Adam has felt a weight of responsibility and through dance has used his body to fill the void of loss. Unable to find peace, he lives in emotional isolation until he is cast in a play titled ‘Single Soul’ in a role he feels deeply connected to on some cosmic level. During his poorly delivered audition, Adam experiences hallucinations that lead to the truth about his father’s death.
