Storyline

You’ve lived in Toronto your whole life and know the city inside out. Today, however, during your afternoon stroll, the inexplicable happens.

The world around you freezes for a second, and when it starts moving again, all the colors are scrambled. 

It looks like you’re stuck in a negative photograph of the world. The ‘Stop’ sign is green, passers-by smile with black teeth, and a purple sun shines in the orange sky.

As you rub your eyes in disbelief, a sharp object flies by your ear and almost cuts it off. You decide to take shelter and hurry home, but will you ever make it out of the darkroom?
