The Moon Also Rises

Artificial moons are going to be launched into space to eliminate the difference between day and night. An elderly couple retreats into their apartment, isolated from nature and the outside world. They follow their daily routines lit by neon lights and digital devices. A voice that seems to come from nowhere is their constant companion. “Breathe in,” it says, “breathe out. Time is just a feeling. Everything will be okay.”
