Written and Directed by: Clarke Phillips

In a world where oxygen is a commodity, a young woman must find a way to provide for her younger sister who suffers from a respiratory disease, or lose her to social services.

After a failed attempt at becoming a full-time artist, Vanessa does her best to ration out the remaining oxygen in her apartment for her younger siblings – Josie and Marcus – until she can afford more. While searching for ways to survive financially, Ms. Angie, Vanessa’s social worker, warns that Josie will be removed from Vanessa’s custody if she doesn’t provide for her soon. Marcus suggests Vanessa become a fighter at a local underground boxing ring where winners earn air filters. Vanessa rejects his idea, but when Josie’s asthma flares up again, she puts her pride aside and fights.
