Synopsis

If the parts of a ship are replaced, bit-by-bit, is it still the same ship? An unusual photographer grapples with the loss of her intuitive brilliance in the aftermath of a clinical procedure; an erudite monk confronting an ethical dilemma has to choose between principle and death; and a young stockbroker, following the trail of a stolen kidney, learns how intricate morality could be. Following the separate strands of their philosophical journeys, and their eventual convergence, SHIP OF THESEUS explores questions of identity, justice, beauty, meaning and death.
