Illustration for article titled In the Future, Breaking Up Could Mean Blasting Off to Another Planet

In this video for “Embrace,” by ambient musician Helios and directed by Sean Pecknold, a couple has an argument in the desert that we observe from afar. Then the woman makes an emotional exit into outer space, beelining for another planet.


The meaning here is open to interpretation (it’s implied that she’s taken a job from which “there is no returning home”—Mars mission, perhaps?), but the video description simply notes:

Relationships are not easy, especially in the next 30 years.
