The Great Conjunction

United Kingdom | 15 min | Drama, Family | 2021 | Short Film (Live Action) | English

The Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn happens only once in twenty years, and Kenneth, an old astronomer, will miss it. But what was meant to be a quiet evening of observing the universe turns into a night of a shocking discovery that changes the old astronomer's life forever.


বৃহস্পতি এবং শনির মহামিলন বিশ বছরে একবারই ঘটে এবং কেনেথ, একজন বৃদ্ধ জ্যোতির্বিজ্ঞানী, এটি দেখার সুযোগ হারাতে চান না। কিন্তু যে শান্তিপূর্ণ সন্ধ্যা মহাবিশ্ব পর্যবেক্ষণের জন্যে ঠিক করা হয়েছিলো, তা একটি মর্মান্তিক আবিষ্কারের রাতে পরিণত হয়, যা এই বৃদ্ধ জ্যোতির্বিজ্ঞানীর জীবনকে চিরতরে বদলে দেয়।
