Synopsis: Transience is about three young boys playing on a beach. The first is at the dawn of humanity, the second is in present time, and the third is at the very end of humanity on Earth (and from the setting it's millions, if not billions, of years in the future). The ocean washes each of their footprints out of the sand and continues on though Man itself has come and gone.
