It was released through Machinima's YouTube channel on November 28, 2011, and through Infectious Designer's channel on March 29, 2012.
The short film is a retelling of the two first Half-Life chapters, Black Mesa Inbound and Anomalous Materials, during which Gordon Freeman rides the Black Mesa Transit System to his workplace within Black Mesa, the Anomalous Materials Test Labs and Control Facilities in Sector C. Cave Johnson's visitor name tag can also be seen in the train.
The film ends with an humorous reference to the "casserole debacle", in which Freeman destroys a meal in the Anomalous Materials' microwave oven.
The film combines live action and CG environments, to give the film a "semi-realistic look".
