Simulacrum is the story of the Master programmer and teacher, Laocius who has found a way to free people from the emotionless virtual world to which humanity has confined itself for generations. In an effort to convince his students that a virtual reality isn't enough, he shows them memories from before virtual reality.

We are looking to juxtapose a stark, emotionless, dystopian world with wistful memories of a vibrant and compassionate past, in order to emphasize the importance of the human connection through physical means.
