What if every neuron in the human brain could be mapped and decoded? Every act of human behaviour catalogued and wholly understood? Elegy imagines a very-near future in which radical and unprecedented advances in medical science mean that it’s now possible to augment and extend life.

Through the beautiful and moving story of three women who’ve made the choice between love and survival, Elegy explores a world in which the brain is no longer a mystery to us. But at what cost?
