In this universe, humanoids address the question of their conditions. A child asks his mother what they are, a group comes up with a new concept of life around love, a line by Virginia Woolf is constructed of little lights and a child says that it is impossible to cry in zero gravity. Beyond the representations that we could attribute to them: artificial intelligence, avatars, roboids, human ersatzes, they live in their history and are not strictly the object of our experience. As the mother announces to her child, "we are data" and that is what they embody. They use song to connect beings through the ages as the only effective technology of transmission. Together, they create a village, a family that questions how to live together, how to transmit, why to love and how to exist.
