Synopsis: This is a story about a bunch of stupid greedy people in a parallel universe, not too dissimilar to ours. We open on two men hunting. Suddenly, they spot a beautiful object flying in the sky; one of the men is struck by it as it falls to earth. It’s a small shiny cube that makes really nice sounds. This sets off a very particular chain of events, which ultimately reveal the true nature of the people who live there.
