On the damp, dark and dangerous streets of futuristic Los Angeles, a lone drug dealer tries to raise enough credit for a ticket to the elusive Off World Islands, a utopian paradise where he hopes to make a fresh start, away from crime. In a race against time, the dealer is forced to take desperate measures, and his determination will be put to the test when his paths merge with a corrupt cop who has different plans.
That's the plot of the short sci-fi film Slice of Life, a multimedia project backed by a creative team led by Luka Hrgović and Dino Julius. What makes this film special is the fact that it was made without computer-generated effects, that is, in the way that cult SF films such as Blade Runner (1982), Alien (1979) and the original Star Wars trilogy were made. 1980, 1983).
