The film follows a small probe in a quest to find and collect music while recording electromagnetic waves as it approaches a black hole. The probe is several eons old and has outlived its makers. Yet, it tries to send its recordings of the universe aging around it as it leaves a trail of waves behind. The black hole in the film is a symbol of death that lies in wait for the probe. The signals that it collects are different experiences that human beings go through in their lives. The trail that it leaves behind symbolises the memories that human beings make from those experiences. Death, like the gravity of the black hole, is inevitable. In order to understand what it might feel as it faces death at the end of its epic journey, the probe was humanised. Will the probe, having seen more of the universe than any other form of life, have a different approach towards death? This film is an attempt to understand that.
