What If You Had To Keep PAYING Life Support Machine To Stay Alive?

In this short proof-of-concept film a woman copes with a terminal illness while a machine keeps her alive. And whenever time is up, her lover must pump more money into the machine.

Director Jason Ho and his co-writer Andrew Post are hoping to turn Into Dusk into a longer film. As it stands, though, it works as a brief fable about individuals bearing the financial burden of their medical care.
