The short takes viewers through the negative space of lockdown over the course of a day, following introspective faceless citizens who mirror the somber poem of the same name, by poet and Motionpoems founder Todd Boss. The animation begins “On lockdown a week was a month, and a month was cosmic,” harkening to the listlessness and detachment from days and weeks so many felt in quarantine, before acknowledging the social upheaval surrounding the death of George Floyd and the “darker and lonelier disease” the death diagnosed around the world.
