Set in the year 2045, cybernetic enhancements to the human body have become commonplace.
Ironically, a deadly virus has emerged that causes the human body to reject its own living organs.
Against this grim backdrop we meet Oz (Chau), a man wiling to take desperate measures to secure a cybernetic organ replacement vital in saving the woman he loves.
TEMPLE explodes onto the screen with dazzling visual effects and explosive fight choreography.
The world hinted to in the short by director/producer Nguyen is dark, mysterious, and compelling.
Film lead Osric Chau has been a personal favorite ever since I saw him in the live action web series Halo: Forward Unto Dawn, and as the prophet Kevin Tran on the CW's long running series Supernatural.
