By Seamus Daniel and Jessica Hooper

CRUX tells the story of a society that has a choice. Leave the fast lane, surrender indulgences, and develop technologies that help subdue the damage they have already inflicted or continue marching towards a world of sunken cities, tainted air and soured oceans.

The voice of a young woman from a nondescript future where everything went wrong guides audience back to our present moment, encouraging a change in subsistence and renewed emphasis on technological solutions to climate change and carbon saturated societies.
