In a future not far from ours, where man has exhausted all energy resources, Gaia and David, two kids, are forced to team up in a desperate attempt to survive a world turned hostile.
Their last chance is a safe haven called the colony.
One of Them is set in a post-apocalyptic future run by vicious gangs fighting for the last scraps of energy available.
The 17 minutes short film tells the story of two kids, Gaia, 16 and David, 10, surviving in this harsh environment. They meet on the road, in the wild, looking for a safe haven called the Colony, a last hope gathering place for survivors.
Their only chance to find it is a damaged antique holographic map, that Gaia carries with her like a treasure. But when David unintentionally breaks it, he is forced to face the demons of his past to help Gaia unveil the secrets of the map.
