A mythical universe's existence is threatened by the arrival of unthinking and uncaring visitors.

Divine Fate

This colorful animation tells the tale of a mythical universe whose existence is threatened by the arrival of unthinking and uncaring visitors. From Oscar®-nominated animator Ishu Patel comes a thought-provoking metaphor for our times: a cautionary tale with a pro-environmental theme.

"Remember: Take only what you must, and give something good in return."
