A silent film persona confronts internet culture and tension between the digital and physical world. The protagonist, played by director K8 Howl, lives in an abandoned mall. Disconnected from people, he searches for windows of communication in the display section of Lowe's. From the other side of a touch screen, he attempts to cross over, but where does someone belong when a culture is split in half?
