A Man Pays a Painful Price for Reliving His Happiest Memories in Scifi Short Again™

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

The premise of Mitch Glass’ short Again™ is almost an anti-Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. A heartbroken young man becomes obsessed with reliving his happiest memories with his ex-girlfriend, vividly conjured via a new brain-meddling technology. Is there a catch? Of course there is—and a twist, too.

Again™ was made for just over $2,000 (the actors were paid in pizza), but you’d never guess it. The special effects may be lo-fi, but the production values are high otherwise, and the story has unusual depth for something that unfolds in just 15 minutes.
