_T0701_

Zeugma (Singapore)

Blurring the lines between the real and the virtual, this stylish, futuristic trip into the everyday struggles of a PMD delivery rider is a multi-sensory treat.

In an ordinary neighborhood sometime in the future, a PMD Delivery Personnel (DePer) finds himself caught between the struggles of the real and digital world. In the digital realm, mainly ruled by MegahCorp, Jati is another avatar of the digital working class, ruled mainly by MegahCorp. Driven by materialistic rewards of financial incentives and social ratings, it offers him a living and hope for the future.

Meanwhile, in the real world, he has to navigate a journey of life lessons while mounting on his PMD. Genuine human connections made often paint a different story of this new way of life he has just started believing in.

As our protagonist reaches a moment of reckoning, Jati soon realizes he could not tell who is the enemy as the line that connects the real and virtual is not as clearly defined anymore.

Conceived by Zeugma, a collective made up of Rizman Putra, Safuan Johari, Brandon Tay, and Zulfadli Rashid (Big), _T0701_ exudes wit and originality the collective is known for.

With its existential themes around survival, ethics, and modern life, along with a mix of virtual reality and storytelling panache, _T0701_ is a dark and entertaining ride not to be missed.
