BEYOND the LIVING
follows Brandon, a troubled man, who is having difficulty adjusting to a society that he views as shallow and stale. To escape, he spends the summer hiking throughout the southeast with his two best friends, Claire and Krishna. The days turn into weeks and Brandon’s mind sinks further into anxiety and fear as he experiences the deterioration of the veil between our world and the world of death. Through visions/hallucinations Brandon journeys deeper and deeper into this otherworld until it crashes into our own existence and the three hikers find themselves fighting for their lives.
