This short film bring into question how far we can be pushed from our innate instincts.
In this world no one can make eye contact without putting themselves and others in danger of catching a contagious virus that leads to death. Removing this impulsive human trait disconnects the individual from the society. This is the worst type of isolation, since each person is put into the position to constantly consciously chose to never look at someone again for the betterment of everyone. This is the type of solitude that wears down on you more and more as each day passes.
