About this submission

This story came about as a result of being cooped up in my student housing during the first half of the COVID-induced lockdown. I found that after spending a few months exclusively indoors, I was plagued with irrational fears about leaving the comfort of my home, which were manifested in this short. The pile-up effect of constant misfortunes, felt to me like a metaphor for the year 2020 at large and I found myself drawn to the idea of the character, at the end, having returned to square one without gaining his goal—an illustration of my frustration over cancelled plans.
