Could we be immortal? The ancient Greeks believed that a force known as an “Asphyx” departed from our bodies at the moment of death. What would happen if someone were to capture and contain such a force? Parapsychologist Hugo Cunningham (Robert Stevens) desires to find out!
Cunningham discovers the asphyx by photographing people at the moment of their deaths. He discovers strange blurs that escape the body and sets out to capture these blurs. His theory? Capture an Asphyx and become immortal.
