Event Horizon

Synopsis:

In a time when Pluto is still the 9th planet of the solar system and music tracks need to be rewind, Julianne, who knows that childhood doesn’t last long but being an adult lasts forever, refuses to grow up too quickly and to let go of her estranged friend. When her fear of the unknown manifests itself in the shape of a mysterious cosmic object, she must overcome her old self and embrace what lies ahead.
