This is a short film under intensive work for 10 weeks. A meaningful self-exploration journey with plenty of inspirations and reflections. The workflow includes the divergence and convergence phase, weekly documentation with iteration and reframation, which is meaningful for all kinds of creative work.


Touching technology involves almost all our daily activities, but we still suffer touch starvation. Following a single girl with skin hunger looking for the cuddle partner to feed her “starvation”, how does her hunger would be fed? Does she satisfy?
