Twenty Forty Three

A dystopian love story set in a world where a virus deems physical contact impossible.

Thirty years after a devastating disease has consumed humankind, Jack and the last if humanity live under the ultimate truce: to never touch again. Working as a disposal officer, Jack sees the last terror of the plague - in those who defect, who succumb to touch, disease and a despicable death - all from behind the safety of a pane of glass. But as the memories of his mother's last loving touch begin to unravel him, Jack sinks deeper into a void between the sterile and the depraved, where desire is forbidden, fear is mandatory and everything depends on which side of the glass you stand behind.
