Orion Debacle depicts the group of nine Unariun students in the filming process of a psychodrama. They are collectively regressing to the time of ancient society called Orion. Orion - prequel to submerged continent of Atlantis - was highly developed techno- theocratic society that existed 19 million years ago. According to Unarius, Orion was also a primal cause of Smiljanić’s current epileptic condition. Orion Debacle is a story of estrangement that unravels the craving appetite for self-improvement and peculiar tools that humans use to attain it.
