Storyline

Carl DeSouza is a young socially inept boy who finds a friend and sanctuary in cardboard. As he buries himself in this relationship he starts to empower cardboard as a textile by developing it into beautiful constructs largely misunderstood in this world of mass communications. Enter the surrealism of Carl's mind as we see a dream destroyer maliciously tear his work apart and shatter his world, then meet Carl older and wiser, with an almost magical control over cardboard. See him inject his shunted genius into an abandoned alleyway and change the minds of two onlooking street urchins. A social commentary on art, on creation, on social interaction, on life and on how benign objects can be manipulated to transcend their initial creation. Written by Iskandar R. Sharazuddin
