Living a solitary life in a world without light or hope, the central character is engrossed in the pursuit of his lost past. A daily pattern repeats itself. Many hours of effort on a home-made exercise bike enable him to create a momentary illusion of his former life, filled with happiness. The cycle he fell into after losing everything he loved is the only one he knows. It is also a personal prison he cannot free himself from and, indeed, he has no wish to do so. Does moving on mean forgetting?
