Laura inherits from her dead boyfriend the task of finishing a computer game of the Battle of Okinawa in Japan during World War 2. The picture about the cult of the dead is radically thinking over the individual and collective dimension of death - a woman filming herself in front of the computer talking to her absent partner, while her home video is becoming the memory of the dead boyfriend with the anonymous suffering of a war battle in the background. A sci-fi about different levels of the game and at the same time a model of the alternative triangle relationship of a dead man, a friend-filmmaker, and a woman inhabiting the space between the life and death.
