    • Synopsis
    • On the eve of his 30th birthday, William Fischer is forced to reevaluate himself following a near death experience. His attempts at returning to life as he knew it are obstructed by a psychic awakening beyond comprehension. Reality crumbles as he journeys further into the depths of his consciousness, nearing a truth that suggests meaning. His growing disconnect from those around him is accentuated by the deterioration of his marriage and the impulse to return to nature.

      A sensory experience that is both immersive and deeply felt, EMPYREAN is a haunting meditation on the intersection of time, space, and memory. In the vein of introspective genre fare such as UPSTREAM COLOR, SOLARIS and DON'T LOOK NOW, EMPYREAN is a poignant account of disparate individuals seeking out meaning and redemption, as well as a reverent bow to the unknowable.
