    From 20:00

    The third-year students leave the earth and float through the cosmos. It soon becomes clear that in doing so, they are also transcending reality. Gravity is unstable and it is not clear whether the future will come to them or vice versa. Along the way, they explore themes such as megalomaniac expansionism, faith, identity and alienation from their surroundings.  They make attempts to escape from human nature or to redefine what is typical of the human species. Where will they land?
