When a well-meaning scientist creates a device to reincarnate people, she discovers a sinister plot at her company to divert the poorer clients to a black market organ harvesting.

Director's Statement

Technology is changing at a rapid pace. Since the invention of CRISPR and the synthetic chromosome project, Silicon Valley has lead the way. Today, there are over 100,000 tech companies in the US alone. These companies make everything from software, to robotics, to bio organisms. In the future, corporations may very well be in charge of our lives and our deaths. Veil is what would happen if a corporation had a monopoly on reincarnation. What would the moral implications of such an invention be? What if the only voice of reason was the scientist who created the technology?
