The vast and mysterious expanse of space serves as the backdrop for this intriguing story.

With rescue seeming more and more unlikely, the isolation of space begins to play tricks on their minds and emotions.

What follows is a series of heartfelt conversations, flirty debates, and genuine moments of connection as they contemplate whether they’re better off as friends or if there’s potential for something more profound.

Being 6’ 4” and Asian, he never really fit in, so he got comfortable standing out. Not only is it easy to find him in crowds, he dabbles in the culinary arts, does a little stand up and improv, and can honestly say Spider-Man is the Jesus-like influence of his life. Kevin Fenix loves dogs, movies, television, comics, comedy, and to shoot people… with video.
