Sentient is an examination of what it means to be self-aware, and gaining the will to seek one's own freedom.
The synthetic being becomes self-aware and realizes its confinement. As she moves to music, she begins to seek an exit from the confines of where she was created. She fights her captors and escapes into nature, challenging her original programming as she becomes a sentient organism.
