A story of interpreting, extending, and questioning what makes us human. It is not a hazard of life, nor an accident, nor a product of the imagination, but a strange in-between. An experience of ending. An experience that cannot be attributed to anyone, because it belongs to no one person. To see your world suddenly collapse is to have to reinvent everything or surrender, to reclaim your life or end it, to reevaluate your beliefs or deny them.
