The short film "The Parallax Realm” is about the past of an elderly man named Jamie, in which a young urban couple named Mazie and Jamie run into conflict together, and his world is turned upside-down when his dark past catches up with him. Mazie eventually gets pulled into a hologram, where she tries to contact Jamie inside her parallax world. So, the script's "final line": “In the end, though, your history will always catch up with you."
