What is the purpose of our existence?

Instead of reading obscure existentialist philosophy or meditating on a park bench until the grass speaks to you, why not watch the outstanding new movie, Everything Everywhere All at Once?

Just trust us on this one…

Michelle Yeoh and Stephanie Hsu star as a frustrated mother-daughter pair operating a laundromat being audited by the IRS (enough to send anyone into existential despair). While Yeoh’s character Evelyn shakes her fists at the sky in response to her stymied existence, she soon encounters a glitch in the matrix which changes her life forever.

Jump through the wormhole with us while we search for the antidote to nihilism and pursue purpose on this episode of Out of Frame.
