SHUT OFF

Shut Off Option 2.png

Christian a self confessed workaholic is on a business trip for his company in remote China when he gets unexpectedly delayed due to the outbreak of the new COVID-19 (Corona virus) Virus.

 

Over the course of one day he will need to connect with various important people in his life using only the technology he has available in his room. Christian will discover that while he feels shut off, technology enables him to connect to those who matter most in a time or urgent need.

 

Shut Off shows that at the centre of this global pandemic there are still genuine human stories going on and that we shouldn't lose our humanity in the face of a global crisis.
