Author’s Summary:
She is deeply strange and strangely deep. She looks in the void and the void blinks first. This is how Jillian Holtzman makes herself.

Review:
An exploration of how Jillian Holtzman became a highly skilled, unapologetically non-conformist engineer. It follows Holtzman’s perspective from smart, proud little girl to directionless, isolated certified engineer to the events of the film, with her always being uncompromisingly herself. The narrative flows very naturally, with well-chosen phrasing and pacing, to form a story is both dizzying and touching.
