Set in the perhaps-not-so-distant future, Earth is dying. Eden, a new planet capable of sustaining life, has been discovered due to an advancement in technology during a time when conglomerate markets and giant corporations have a hand in what the weather will be like that day, to the sex of your next child. The wealthy and upper middle-class of the world have taken their leave, those left behind succumbing to the perils of an abandoned society. In a bid to extend a hand of mercy--or is it?--those responsible for the dwindling masses on Earth establish a multitude of tasks and televised 'games'. Those who attempt these games wager the ultimate bet... their life. The most popular of these is 'The Run', a do-or-die race to the finish in which contestants must suffer the obstacles of unbearable heat, inedible foliage, tainted water, and a group of specially trained mercenaries.

Production Notes by The Producer
"The purpose of Finding Eden (the short) is to show a very subtle teaser of what we hope to accomplish with a feature. The short itself really only represents about 25% (the game; being hunted, obstacles, the hunters, etc.) of what will be in the feature. Its vague storyline is meant to draw out viewer questions, allowing us to talk about the feature and attract followers. Finding Eden (the short) is an important first step in the money raising and creative outlining process. "
