Directed by: Mirror Su

Written by: Samantha Aguiar

A man lives on a lonely ice world with only a snow woman for company. His life is hard in this cold, harsh world, but he never plans to leave. One day, the sun comes out and threatens to melt everything he holds dear. He builds a boat out of the snow from his demolished house in order to escape his world and the sun's wrath. Bringing the snow woman with him, he sets out on a voyage of destruction and rebirth. Along the way, a storm forces him to choose between turning back towards the sun or going on to save the snow woman from melting, but the waves send him on a collision course with an iceberg. The man attempts to save the snow woman with no regard for his own mortality.
