Her school days are soon consumed by fear and paranoia, but she finds guidance and companionship in the most unexpected of places.

  • Human society has collapsed, and a vast, automatic factory keeps humanity oppressed after deciding that freedom of choice and free will only delay consumption of its products. A small band of rebels are all that stand in the factory's way - but when they resolve to destroy it, they may find that they're the perfect consumers after all.

  • Two jaded space tourism employees take up an elderly woman's request for a trip back to Earth - a planet whose existence is a long-debunked myth. She's easily confused but very rich, so what's the harm in indulging her fantasies? As the journey unfolds, their scam begins to eat away at them and they ultimately find themselves dealt a bittersweet surprise.
