Storyline

You are EgoNibi, a legendary street artist from Tunam. You’ve become world-famous thanks to your art, and you believe every work should bear a message to better the world.

Years ago, Tunam fell into the hands of an authoritarian leader, and you were forced to flee the country for your own safety. Art is a target in Tunam today.

You’re planning your first proper exhibition in an Ottawa gallery. It’s your first work in Canada.

You always expect Tunam to interfere but this time, they’ll go too far.
