After a near fatal accident that left her paralyzed from the waist down, Emma stopped her research.

Now alone, Emma is trapped in her wheel chair unable to get to her insulin. She is in a battle both physically and spiritually, to live.

The time lapse of Emma on the ground was filmed with a camera attached to a kitchen timer on the ceiling. It had to be filmed twice because the camera angle was incorrect during the first run.
