We are all born with instincts that tell us how to act in order to survive. What happens to these abilities in a society where the probability of facing a life-threatening danger is almost non-existent?
Has the lack of such situations made everyday complications and problems trigger us as if they were deadly threats?
'Outlive' follows a contemporary group of individuals as they explore their primitive survival instincts and how they are expressed in modern society. Along the way, they experience both liberation and imprisonment, openness and prejudice, pride and shame.
What happens when you go against your instincts? And what measures are required to survive in modern society?
