The Weight of Our Travels is a short fantasy film. The story takes place in the world of the travellers. Theirs is a world both wild and barren. The travellers grow and gain memories from this world that take a physical form, which they choose to store inside sack-like objects called carriers. Athena has been travelling for many years and her age and experience has led to her carrier becoming vast and a great burden to carry. As Athena traverses the lands, she is stalked by The Forgotten: Nightmarish creatures that exist to steal the contents of a traveller’s carrier. Athena must surge forward to keep ahead of The Forgotten, because if they succeed in capturing her carrier Athena will cease to exist; her identity will be completely erased.
