Pay What You Can

The Internet

We follow the journey of Friend, a lost being who cannot understand their emotions, which has, to their confusion, caused their body to fragment. They need help in finding their way back to themselves. In order to learn the ways in which “we” feel, they will go on a sensorial exploration via interactions with some new folks they meet along the way, in order to explore how our minds create neurological connections through experience and memory.
