    • Produced February - July 2018
    • Written and Directed by Michael Baker.
    • A mysterious old man (Martin Danzig) sits in the park feeding pigeons, rueing the refuse of humanity encroaching on his sanctuary. A man in a crisp white suit approaches and informs him that although still needed, he is no longer wanted. Facing feelings of uselessness, Danzig begs to stay, but is rebuffed. As a final gift, Danzig gets to meet his much younger replacement and learns to accept his future - with the fate of all humanity in the balance.

      Starring Walter Koenig (Star Trek), Kevin Page (Robocop, Seinfeld, Dallas), Alana Gay
