Description
Markus, a down-on-his-luck skeptic is tormented by his inner demons and ever present regret for the chances he never took. Most notably, never letting his childhood best friend - Ruby - know how he truly feels. Since their last encounter, he has descended into a deep depression, pill addiction, and ultimately this bizarre lucid dream-state.

RUBY

Description
The embodiment of 'seeing the world through rose-colored glasses' - Ruby is Markus' unrequited first crush. She exudes an inspiring amount of positivity in contrast to her unwavering cheekiness. Much like Markus, has found herself in this induced dream-state after a series of misfortunate events.
