In the wake of personal crisis, a global pandemic and devastating wildfires emerges desperate Fred Fernow, who has lost everything. When he cries out for help, a mysterious stranger invites him to play a virtual reality game to find the answers he’s looking for. Fred goes on to play a strikingly different character in each of three rounds in a virtual universe called EarthLife. Fred's alter egos confront their deepest fears and glimpse their highest potentials as they uncover the rules governing EarthLife and start harnessing the mystical energies at play in the universe. Ultimately, the film arcs back to Fred, and we observe whether he has benefitted from his visit to the EarthLife universe. An even more fundamental question arises: has he unwittingly been there all along?

Intriguing, inspirational and emotionally gripping, “EarthLife” not only launches a fascinating new franchise, it subtly reveals the true operating system of the life we’re all living.
