Destination X

Destination X is a science fiction parable about obsession and single-mindedness. Inspired by pulp sci-fi, Star Trek, ghost stories, and The Twilight Zone.

This is the story of young Sam, grandson to a world-renowned space adventurer and author. Marvelled by his ailing grandfather’s stories of interstellar travel and alien romance, young Sam models his life after his famous relative — even though no one knows if these stories are true. So focussed is Sam on fulfilling what he thinks is his natural destiny, he becomes blind to his own reality. Just as his life begins to finally resemble that of his grandfather, his follies and shortsightedness ultimately lead to heartache, disaster, and an unsettling tragic end.
