In a world where cognitive technology is absolutely embedded in the society, the film focuses on the consequences of the use of such a technology, specifically in the decision making and the process of memories of “Acrobat”, an 18 year old teenager, as a result of the education he has already obtained. In fact we are describing some daily habits to showcase his perception and process of information. “Acrobat” like any other citizen is connected to the whole world through shared encountered memories and social issues which are taken into consideration even in the most mundane of tasks. Bad memory stimuli on his brain are over exposed through the film so that to emphasise on his meaningful human control on the “device”. The film ends with a view of his  perception of the world, while getting a rush of memories through every single sight, smell and sound. Despite the fact that this overdose of senses and feelings are being occurred to him, Acrobat seems to stand critically and know exactly the right moment to turn his device off.
