Terminus Synopsis

After inadvertently offending a strange entity that accosts him on his way to work, a 1970s businessman quickly finds himself in the midst if a bizarre predicament.
What follows is a rapid descent into madness, a journey both eerie and darkly humorous.
The exact nature of the businessman's tormentor is purposefully ambiguous, lending itself to a variety of interpretations.
Is "Terminus" a surreal critique of human alienation in the modern urban environment? or is the protagonist's struggle an internal one, his mysterious stalker a manifestation of his repressed subconscious mind?
Either way, "Terminus"'s innovative visual effects and distinctively vintage atmosphere make it a highly engrossing experience.

Oaoo, this is really ... hmmm interesting point if view. I think this represents our dependent life from everything what mankind have made for facility's sake in it life and ... it is little bit confusing. I don't now really what the author is representing, but it is something different, abstract. I like it, yes, and I'm very happy to see short like this. Keep on
