Inspired by a true story 'STILL/HERE' tells the story of Michael, an architect who survives a car accident. After a bizarre near-death experience he struggles with himself to find a place in a world he no longer understands.

-----

'Our normal waking consciousness is but one special type of consciousness, while all about it parted from it by the filmiest of screens there lie potential forms of consciousness entirely different. We may go through life without suspecting their existence, but apply the requisite stimulus and at a touch they are there in all their completeness… At any rate, they forbid our premature closing of accounts with reality.'
