Desiderata

Erasmus, a ‘sensor’ diagnosed with General Anxiety Disorder, confronts an existential mid-30s crisis living in a large city of watchers (urbanites) who hide behind technology rather than open themselves to spontaneous interaction. When his anti-anxiety medication inexplicably stops working, he turns to reaching out to people over the internet to distract him from his inevitable slide into neurosis. If modernity and technology are building a wall between people, muses Erasmus, then 'it’s time to become a part of the wall' in the hope of somehow actualizing a real human connection. But then, all is not what it seems as the two worlds Erasmus inhabits start to collide - with surprising results.
