Part science fiction, part study of faith and belief, Cargo follows the life of an astronaut called Prahastha’s. When his ship comes close to Earth every morning, ‘cargos’ start arriving at the arrival station. Each cargo is a person who has just died. Prahastha’s job is to prepare each deceased person for rebirth back on Earth.
After many years of working alone, a new astronaut joins him as his assistant. This fascinating film explores their relationship and through them, the concepts of life and death, and of hope and longing.
