In the Gap by Albin Glasell

A woman wakes up trapped inside a server room. Then, she sees the countdown clock.

A woman wakes up in a labyrinthine server room as a countdown clock looms in front of her.

Disoriented and worn down, she wanders the room, trying to figure out what’s happening to her. But she’s tormented by visions of her past mistakes, many of them involving her daughter.

The server computer offers her a decision: endure these painful visions of the past, or take the easy way out.

Fans of high-concept sci-fi like “Black Mirror” will find much to admire in this Swedish sci-fi short. Written and directed by Albin Glasell and produced by Daniel Bajnoci, it features clean, precise cinematography and a stellar performance by actress Lo Kauppi, who wrenches strong emotion from the script’s minimal dialogue.

The film takes place in a dystopian future, but it hits upon an age-old emotional dilemma: how we reckon with past regrets, mistakes and fears, and move forward into the future. Watching “In the Gap” offers a provocative take on the question, and will make you look at it from an entirely new direction.
