‘The Name that Separates’ is a modern take on the traditional story from the book of Genesis, where Jacob wrestles with the angel. This Sci-fi short film takes place in the future where there have been strange occurrences involving a specific supernatural being. 

"It is because I saw God face to face, and yet my life was spared." (Gen. 32:30 NIV)

[A quote by Jacob after wrestling the Angel]

God wants us to recognize and confess who He is and to be a witness of His glory. Which is why Leah is left alive so that she can be a witness, confessing her encounter to ‘The Watchers’. Leaving the mystery of the supernatural to plausible truth.
