Two hundred thousand Americans are dead today, September 20, 2020. And in the lives of ordinary people, COVID is not tired of making us sick, although you might be sick and tired. People spew the virus, breathing their cause in the unprecedented time of pandemic social unrest.
And this interior space seals us off into quarantine quiet as a somber place where we are compelled to turn our minds into a journey of infernos in the night coming face to face with the unknown –
A thrilling, suspenseful tale told through the eyes of an adolescent girl in isolation of the Coronavirus.
