Years ago the boy Sean witnessed his parents being killed. Today he numbs his broken soul by living hard as a drug dealer in a superficial world of violence, emotional detachment and empty relations. When his eye catches the elusive beauty, Lilly, he immediately recognises her as a kindred spirit. Sean learns that she is a heroin addict. By saving her from addiction, he glimpses a chance to escape his meaningless existence, find love and heal both their lives. Through Sean and Lilly’s complicated struggle with meaning and love, In Embryo portrays the difficulties that meet the human spirit, as it fights to break free of past traumas and the scars left behind.

Plus the short animations A Little Grey and Hope.
