Born with a rare genetic condition, Milo faces a short life of pain and suffering. Modern medicine has failed him, offering rudimentary fixes that leave Milo feeling more trapped than liberated. Until Milo’s friend Darius finds a cure—a brand new robotic body. Milo’s quality of life is greatly improved, but this new body brings its own set of unforseen challenges.
Milo examines our healthcare system, bodily autonomy, and the way we treat—and perceive—invisible disabilities.
