A year ago, the McCoubrey Brothers brought us the morbid and hilarious short The Grey Matter. Now the dynamic duo is back with a fascinating psychological thriller called Therefore I Am that will keep your mind churning long after the credits roll.

The time-traveling suspense of Therefore I Am needs less than seven minutes sitting in both older and younger Herbert's shoes to get your heart pumping. Here's the official synopsis for the short, in case you're not sold already:

A mysterious encounter between a man who claims to be from the future and the man that he claims is his former self. A surreal psychological thriller about loss and regret. All set within the framework of a time travel story that loosely operates in accordance to the paradox-less MWI (many-worlds interpretation) in quantum mechanics.

Check out the McCoubrey Brothers' Therefore I Am and see if you can figure out what happened in this mind-bending film.

Notice the time of day changing? The number of beers consumed? The ages of the doppelgängers? So many questions in such a short amount of time. Therefore I Am delivers mystery and suspense in the best possible way.
