A woman embraces cryonics as she challenges the limitations of her mind and body

Shot on beautiful, moody black-and-white film, this short documentary offers a look into the life of a computer scientist and dancer whose multiple sclerosis diagnosis leads her to explore new ways of moving and of thinking. Embracing the controversial practice of cryonics in hopes that there might one day be a cure for MS, she says: ‘We’re just waiting for technology to catch up with our imagination’.
