Review by: Alex Jon Blythe on Feb. 25, 2016 :
Strange Lovecraft-esque, brooding piece with a bit of David Lynch thrown in. It's dark tone won't be for everyone, no story ever is, but if you want to feel just a little *unsettled* for ten minutes I recommend not to pass this up. Huang has a style of writing that haunts and balances on forbidden boundaries unashamedly.

I don't know how this won an award. The narrator is an irresponsible jerk!
