Director Mengtai Zhang went through a difficult time as a teenager. His parents were going through a divorce, and he increasingly escaped into the world of online computer games. His distraught parents finally decided to send him to a special center to be cured of his internet addiction. In this VR simulation, we walk with Mengtai through the inhospitable space of a Chinese mental institution, which transforms over time into a prison from which there is no escape.
