The Speed of Life

The Synopsis
Two time travelling Aliens arrive on Earth searching for the truth behind the words, music and changing faces of their hero David Bowie. In their quest for the meaning of human creativity through Bowies work they are exposed to a word of self-destruction and loneliness. London, Los Angelos, Berlin and New York show them the beauty and the horror of the modern world and introduces them to the human beings greatest quality, love.
Part Pop culture Sci-Fi thriller part love letter to David Bowie, The Speed of Life is a quiet meditation on the unreachable mystery and power of music.
