He finds himself in a world where TV shows are made by autonomous submarines, wealthy people hide behind borrowed identities and beautiful girls appear out of nowhere.

This is his journey through an urban, rural, suburban and, ultimately, psychic labyrinth. In the middle stands a mythical figure who knows the way out.

Follow Charles through the wormhole.
