'Story' is a reflection on modern man in an age of omnipresent technology. Looking through stories—a popular function on many social media platforms—we see people who are lonely, lost or already indifferent about the reality surrounding them. Taking place over one day, the virtual world begins to seep into reality as the adverse effects of a life completely lived online become painfully apparent.
