The story

The story takes place in a remote industrial town in the United States, where you can only find telecommunications antennas, a tech university, modern cafes and large abandoned warehouses.

In this town forgotten in time we can see architecture from the 70s and 80s. The modern life appears as a patch of an old abandoned lifestyle. Starbucks cafes, tech companies, and trendy bars are embedded in old classic buildings.

Within that atmosphere of a forgotten place in the world where no one is watching, our young characters meet their ambitions to reveal one of the great mysteries of humanity: is it possible to see the dead? But without contemplating the most important question: Should they?
