I wanted to play around with the idea of identity. Kind of like Still Life, but I wanted to create another type of prison a consciousness would live in. Actually, the main character has several prisons he has to live in right? Physical prison of his body, mental prison of being in that body and communicative (is that a word? I think it is...) prison of not being able to say anything substantive.
A jail within a jail, within a jail. The incarceration of the worst of the worst. I wonder what the person inhabiting Kris' body did to get jailed in there? Hmmmm...I must think about that. It might make a good prequel.
