Experience the frustration of not being able to touch or intervene in the protagonist. A VR film based on the filmmaker’s real-life experiences.

A woman in her 40s comes home from work as always. Extremely tired, she smokes a cigarette, watches TV, and prepares a pre-made dinner like an automaton. The time she spends in her garden and in nature helps ease her physical and mental exhaustion.
