How to Watch

Sebastian is a quiet, unassuming man who loves a dog who likes to bark. He can’t leave the dog at home, can’t take it to work, so he has to find a new job. When a meteorite hits, poisoning the air, Sebastian’s almost otherworldly compassion is suddenly his greatest gift.

Now Sebastian (Daniel Katz) must find work, and, suddenly, he is the father of a new baby. Navigating these twists and turns, he takes them all in stride, calmly and without anger. But then a meteorite strikes the earth, poisoning the air, though only at a height of 4 feet--meaning you have to either wear an oxygenated bubble or crouch everywhere. And now Sebastian’s profound kindness, his patience, and his observational skills are precisely what this world needs. “[A] tiny, monochrome miracle of a movie that gives you years of life and change and mystery in 73 calm minutes.” --Jessica Kiang, Variety
