This. mysterious Alien Mind Control Syndrome, has taken hold of people in strange and unexpected ways.Director's Bio:Jude Chun is a Korean-Canadian director currently working in Seoul, Korea.

It’s unique, funny, thought-provoking, cinematic, daring, intriguing, smart, joyful, and life-affirming, while aware of life’s and earth’s challenges. You grasp its meaning through osmosis. This film has everything in it, but mostly it has freedom—a truly indie effort." –BendFilm Team
