If light records everything we do, can even shadows hide our secrets?
Imagine your entire life is available for review. Imagine each day any event can be watched over and over again - your birth, your first kiss, your recent shower, that private itch - all replayable from any angle. Now imagine these can be viewed by anyone at any time.
Is a world where there is far less ego, little crime, and even the smallest moments are recorded and available publicly through the 'Grand Archive' a Utopia or a Dystopia? Traumatized by memories he does not want to recall, artist Ben Tinthawin is recruited by the enigmatic, Grand Archive creator Dr. Mamon, who seeks help for his nextgen designs to enhance the world. Ben stumbles across a secret revealing the doctor's true scheme in all its surreal splendor and questions whether the doctor really is the benevolent soul he claims to be.As the paths of a broken man and a brilliant revolutionary cross, the world shifts and cracks start to appear. Even our most fundamental codes can be encrypted - or corrupted. If the wrong information is discovered, more than Ben's life will be in danger of total shut down.
Prepare yourself for full exposure.
