In the future, the things we own take on more human nature. Partially by design to make us feel more comfortable. Meanwhile, owners become more mechanical to one another and the things they own. This came naturally from a collective thought; that everything could be replaced, there are no more ephemeral moments, everything is recorded, logged and could be called back with a snap of a finger. The idea of romance slowly faded into the memory of an older generation. This is where we find Nicole, on a phone in her apartment trying to figure out her current relationship and why it’s not working.
