Product Recall | Full Film

The real and imaginary collide with tragic consequences as a prodigal physicist at the Large Hadron Collider works to answer profound questions about our universe.

Believing he’s unlocked a frightening secret about the origin of matter itself, he suffers a breakdown. Struggling with his own demons in his search for the ‘God particle’, he returns home to convalesce.

Was his breakdown the natural result of a genius but flawed mind? Or a celestial intervention designed to prevent him from exposing his discovery?
