| Synopsis

It’s been a very long time…

to focus on controlling the uncontrollable and ignoring the extreme exhaustion from daily life, we all lost our minds – at once – together. Sooner or later, the unexpected befalls: me and you, and everyone we know – broken and scattered into pieces. Where are our minds? Fitting into different adult life roles with unavoidable conflicts – absence of minds – do you feel you know yourself? In a sudden global cataclysmic event – me and you and everyone we know are unified in our isolation – we work isolated, we study isolated and we struggle isolated.

Embarking on a self-rediscovery journey…isolated.

Me and you, and everyone we know – masked by insecurities and exaggeration of being alone. Are we ready for this new era of life exploration? We have no choice. Sitting from our corner, isolated – me and you and everyone we know – staring at the old television that is being replaced by new digital technology. Sitting like an old television waiting to be replaced… The rhapsody begins with an infinity mirror – at the corner of daring and bored – the minds within you are daunting. The sound and silence, coming along with fatigue and lunacy represents the dispel of inwardness.

The real is just out of [human] touch. The only truth is our skin – me and you and everyone we know. We are the only real, now, isolated. Our many selves for conversation, for comfort, for introspection. Now our only friend will tell the truth. Now we know.
