    Sci-fi

    They told me: “You have a gift, Martha. Down here, your gift is useless. So we're going to show you the most beautiful things. You're going to have more memories than everyone else. And then, you will sleep. You won't wake up. But you will carry the most precious memories from Earth.”

    HOTARU is a story about science-fiction, memories and dreams, made from youtube videos, google earth and virtual tours.
