PLUG: An Excellent Short Film That Leaves Me Wanting More

PLUG is an interesting and well done short film by art director David Levy, whose credits include Tron Legacy, Prometheus, Ender’s Game, Tomorrow Land, and Avatar 2.

PLUG takes place on a post-apocalyptic Earth, where Leila Dawn (played by Natalie Floyd) is the only human survivor. She was raised by Robots after humanity abandoned the planet when it was destroyed via nuclear warfare. Leila cannot forget her parents nor ignore her desire to find other organic life. She sets out on a hunt with a Military Unit named Marker (Lex Cassar) only to discover the reality she’s been denied — a reality that sparks her ultimate quest.

PLUG is the first installment of Levy’s yet-to-be-produced epic series/feature, which follows Leila on her quest to reunite with humanity and the impossible choices she must make about her allegiances – Human or Robot. I look forward to seeing more.
