Moon Project


by Rachel Blackman

Leila is an aeronautical engineer. Shahab is a film maker. Today they have been asked to give a talk about their famous friendship and how two such unlikely people have become friends in the first place.

It all started with a crash. Leila was thrown into the air one day when Shahab crashed his car into her.

Did she experience shock? or peak experience? And was it possible she experienced both at once? Meanwhile Shahab, who has spent his whole life on the run, is having to come to terms with why he didn't stop to see if Leila was ok… Moon Project is about how often the thing we want the most is the thing we are most frightened of. It is also about space.
