An over-worked and under-loved woman tires of the dating scene and tries a new dating app which promises its users that they will “never be alone again”. “Companionship” is an exploration of the commodification of love, the ubiquity of modern advertising and a lamentation of how modernity has stunted our capacity to love. It is the first instalment in the “Darwin Corp” cinematic Universe.
