Short Film Profile


In the near future, humanity has disappeared, leaving behind a large megalopolis devoid of natural life. From the destruction awakes Rosa, a robot part of the Kernel project, mankind's last attempt to restore the earth's ecosystem using recovered samples of long-extinct plant species. Wandering among the ruins of the lifeless city, Rosa will soon discover that she is not the only part of Kernel that has awakened.
