Existence is a post-apocalyptic drama which tells the story of Freya, a woman trapped in a dying world. Set many years from now, the earth is submerged under a toxic ocean – the last remaining landmass barely supports the survivors. Freya's family salvages what little remains in the land where they live, imprisoned by an immense electric fence shutting them off from the world beyond.
"On the treeless, windswept hills overlooking Cook Strait, the sparse remnants of humanity cower in ignorance, bounded by a toxic sea and a seemingly arbitrary fence patrolled by armed horsemen. Loren Taylor is Freya, trapped with her family and a few inscrutable (to them) remnants of life as we currently know it. Refusing to submit to the law hammered home by her severely disapproving father-in-law, she oversteps the boundaries of her existence and, Pandora-like, seeks forbidden knowledge. — Bill Godson NZIFF
