We’re dropped in the middle of a 3-hour interview between Isla Rie and the terminally ill, former director of the Environmental Purification Department (EPD), Dr. Mogana Imbata. The gloves are off with niceties out of the way as Isla struggles to verify even the smallest of details. Having spent decades leading the covert department, Dr. Imbata is well-versed in duplicitous double speech and circumventing persistent truth-seekers.
However, Isla has gathered evidence not only linking the EPD to some of the most important technological achievements in human history, but also to a horrifying past. As their conversation weaves from MK Ultra to string theory, Dr. Imbata slowly reveals a hidden organization pursuing an international agenda to study history’s most challenging question: Who is the Sailor?
Frustrated by Isla’s relentless line of questioning, Dr. Imbata nearly ends their conversation before Isla produces an unmarked VHS tape. Sliding it into the VCR, the truth behind the Sailor and the dark, time-bending connection between Isla and Dr. Imbata is finally revealed.
