In a parallel present, delivery man Ray Tincelli struggles to support himself and his ailing younger brother. After a series of two-bit hustles and unsuccessful swindles, Ray takes a job in a strange new realm of the gig economy: trekking deep into the forest, pulling cable over miles of terrain to connect large, metal cubes that link together the new quantum trading market. As he is drawn deeper into the zone, he encounters growing hostility and the threat of robot cablers and must choose to either help his fellow workers or to get rich and get out.
Discussion with director Noah Hutton, and actors Madeline Wise and Dean Imperial, moderated by Chandler Ferrebee (VAFF) to follow.
