In a small shack built upon the overgrown remains of a world that has faded away, a man lives in complete isolation. Basic survival consumes Sandman’s life. He spends each day foraging and collecting things from his carved out part of the world. Years in complete seclusion have made him detached and despondent. But his daily routines and holding dearly to his memories are what keep him going. That is, until his isolation is intruded upon.

Terrapin was an official selection in the Philip K. Dick Science Fiction Film Festival.
