Francis, a modern-day one-eyed man, has struggled his whole life to see the world the same way as the rest of us. His single eye perceives everything as constantly transforming shapes, creatures and colors we two-eyed humans can barely fathom. Taken under the wing of Bill Vernon, an experimental scientist who believes Francis’s eye may hold the key to seeing multiple dimensions, and Lina Rae Pearson, a young woman who was once the most prolific narrator of books on tape, Francis seeks a place where he will be accepted for his bizarre vision of the world. He becomes many things (an outlaw, a specimen, a speed dater, a UFO hoax, a messiah, an artist, an author and experimental musician) as he tries to find his place in the world, searching in vain for a group of people who will see him for his own true vision, and not just what they want to see in him. This is the third short film from Nathan Punwar, whose most recent film, 'Memory By Design,' screened at the New York Film Festival and Slamdance, among others, in 2012.
