Last Dance

Director: Toshiaki Hanzaki
Country: Japan
Runtime: 00:23:00

The human race has devoured itself in war, resulting in the destruction of our home, the Earth. Only an AI created by human wisdom was able to survive. The AI escaped into space and was given a single mission: the Regeneration of Mankind. It kept recreating the Earth and humanity over and over, hundreds of times. However, the cycle of human extinction did not stop – it only repeated itself every single time.

Just when it seemed history would only repeat forever, a woman danced alone right before the end of her life. The AI, interested in this woman, could not help but to land on Earth to ask her the reason for her Last Dance. The encounter between the AI and her would change the fate of the Earth.
