By Sidney Rushing

Four deities gather to debate the future of their creation: humanity. Has their experiment gone awry or has it grown into something greater than they could have imagined? Jumping through time and space, they explore the best and worst of mankind in this impressionistic exploration of what it means to be human. Akashic Permutations shows us that even in the face of unimaginable despair, humans’ ability to hope and love can save us all.
