Everyone wants to be free. Free from pain, free from suffering, free from destruction, free from rules, free to choose, free to move, free to be. In a world only known to them we hear the stories of those torn between the past and the demand of living in the present. As they try to find ways and seek guidance from others to break the chains that keep them from moving forward. We meet characters like Diva, Woman, Tata, Mr Personality, The Soldiers, The Twins, all presented in ten different exhibits, each one able to stand on its own. Universal topics are explored, topics that can make one feel like they are trapped with no way to get out.

What they don’t realise is that they truly have all the freedom in the world, to do, be and have anything they want. Unfortunately there are rules, some rules may make one feel like they are trapped in a straight-jacket which keeps them from fully engaging in life. It’s a tough world, its either they follow the rules or they make their own.
