Chaya and Kira share a bleak commute to their friend Illy’s funeral. As they hurtle across Brooklyn on the A train, Chaya reveals that she is tormented by visions of a parallel New York in which a highly infectious, deadly disease has ravaged the population.

New Yorkers receive government-issued “skin suits” to avoid transmission through touch, and they struggle to adjust to a new life in which physical sensations are harvested and uploaded to the state-sponsored cloud. “SKINSUIT 1.0” generates empathy and orgastic bliss in a time when when all privacy has been lost, and every sensation can be policed. After the train thrusts Chaya and Kira into the streets of Far Rockaway, the nightmares of the parallel world begin to bleed into their present.
