It is hard for Michelle to let her guard down; however, she is surprised to realize that she is willing to reconcile.

She sees more prospect in her potential connection with Michelle than in their competition and proceeds to act upon it.

Character 1 Name: 
Pauline
Character 1 Age: 
35-60
Character 1 Description: 
Pauline is intelligent and curious and analyzes the world with wonder. Her ambitious nature has died because her lower class stature has classified her as essentially a useless member of society. For this, society has given Pauline the job of perfume salesperson. Pauline sells perfume across virtual reality planes, which leads her to meet Douglas. Her life has become meaningless and unsatisfying and Pauline was developed a bitterness along with it.
Character 2 Age: 
35-60
Character 2 Name: 
Douglas
Character 2 Description: 
Douglas is a VR reality engineer, in the mid-upper level faction. He is a prime example of what society values in their people. He likes to read but not too much, to dress nice but not over the top, to walk briskly but not at an abnormal pace. Douglas understands numbers, loves his job and that is enough for him. He smiles easily but is reserved and cripplingly shy because of the strict society he lives in. He misses the easy laughs of being young but it became shameful after age six.
Character 3 Name: 
Therapist
Character 3 Age: 
23-30
Character 3 Description: 
The Therapist is a government worker. One is necessary every 100 km and they are the one closest to Pauline. They have spent the career reading every Psychology book and even a rare copy of Pride and Prejudice. They present themselves as all-knowing but it is hard to give advice on feelings when you have none. Being stuck in their office alone, they have lost the ability to interact with other humans. Somehow more so than everyone else.

Synopsis: 
‘Hands’ - My film opens with the protagonist being scared away/off by the voice of a dominating, manly shadow. Not even a decade old, the poor kid has to go through varied types of labor to help him with a meal, a day. While he freely hits a marble in his play time, he is reminded of his work. Hardly being able to fathom out his condition, he continues cleaning the cycle rim followed by just some more. It saddens the heart when the kid coughs away the dust and has to fill his little tummy with the filthy leftovers. It is towards the end when the situation becomes totally ironical. A shadow appears; this time, to hold the kid’s hands to make him write. Without giving away any details, I would love my audience to ponder over the perfect use of ‘Hands’, especially when they are yet minor. Using some well-thought-off props during the course of the film, the very fragile theme of ‘Child Labor’ is deepened and enhanced beautifully in ‘Hands’.
