High Life

Claire Denis

The story takes place on a spaceship. Instead of serving a life sentence, a group of criminals accept to be a part of a science mission. They become subjects of an experiment in which the doctor in charge collects their sperm, often against their will, in order to inseminate a young woman. The only survivors are Monte and his daughter Willow who live in complete isolation. Father and daughter approach their goal—a black hole where time and space cease to exist.
