A short virtual reality film about presence, experienced through the eyes of a ghost. She floats in the places she used to be, invisible except for the moments where someone looks straight at her (you), as if they can feel her presence. She dwells in her memories, watching her past-self try to live in the present. Now she just wants to be there with the people she loved, hoping they’ll look towards her for a moment.
