The Life of Osmo

A “Peg Entwistle Productions” FILM

Imagine if your life story was already published - your future written in the past. This philosophical, mind bending comedy will have you more confused than a mongoose operating a time-machine.

Osmo (a 'tense' young man obsessed with classical music and Rube Goldberg machines) becomes increasingly anxious after stumbling across a dusty book in a second-hand store. Entitled 'The Life of Osmo' it outlines his life: past, present and future. Perplexed and on the verge of existential crisis he is referred to a strange company: Occurrence Investigation Incorporated.

Further complications arise as Osmo comes to terms with the apparently inevitable nature of his peculiar, impending death. He falls in love, but the beautiful girl who lives across the hall is seemingly indifferent to his existence.

Can Osmo elude his fate? Or will the grave importance of printed text elude him?
