Omega

A Film by Eva Franz & Andy Goralczyk

Synopsis

The mechanical life form Ohm inhabits a bleak and devastated planet. The thousands of mechanical creatures of this world share a single cycle of energy. In this cycle, Ohm is a rogue element. His nature is to devour and absorb others. When one day a gargantuan foreign object appears in the skies during a lightning storm, the Ohm’s greed will endanger the known order of matter, time and space.
