Defrost takes place in the year 2045, when liquid nitrogen is commonly used to freeze patients until remedies for their illnesses are developed. The film follows the experience of Joan Garrison as she wakes up from her frozen state after thirty years. She reunites with her family, but the reunion is bittersweet, as the passage of time has caused her loved ones to become strangers.
The short was filmed in 360°, allowing audience members to witness the story directly from Joan’s perspective. The result is an intimate and immersive experience unlike any other film.
