Starbright is the story of Grace, an astrophysicist who lost her daughter Abby nearly a year ago. As Grace's life spins out of control, Abby appears to her and begins making predictions about the cosmos.

THE FRANKENSTEIN RUBRICS

By David Hopes
Directed by Doug Savitt

The scientist. The monster. The tale of a creation suffering at the hands of his maker. It’s a story we all know - but what if the creation takes on a life of its own? What if the relationship between them was more complicated than we ever realized, and what if, by the act of making the monster, the scientist was changed as well?
