This 32-minute short subject was advertised as "the first world premier entertainment event to be instantly available worldwide only on the Internet," through on-line film distribution service SightSound.com. Paul Pentcho (Stephen Dorff) is a physicist who works with advanced particle acceleration technology. The stress of his work is sending him toward a breakdown, and while driving back home, he gets into two auto wrecks -- one with former girlfriend Mia (Fay Masterson), the other with her current boyfriend, Will (Russell Brown). Paul takes a chance on renewing his relationship with Mia after his father Alexander (John Cleese) urges him not to throw his life away on his work. Mia and Paul head out for a weekend together, as Paul learns that bringing hearts together is nearly as complicated as smashing atoms. Quantum Project was the first directorial effort from noted film and stage designer Eugenio Zanetti.
