A social media post by a motivational influencer goes viral when it asks people in self-isolation and quarantine to use a brand new, purpose-built chat room to connect with others who are struggling in this unique period of modern history.
We follow a group of individuals, all affected in different ways by the 2020 lockdown, who are also struggling with a wide variety of personal issues in this time. Through new connections and friendships, we see these individuals grow and change with one another’s help.
Humanity is an introspective look, not only at how a variety of people have been dealing with the 2020 lockdown but also at how people interact online and how although the online world can be a negative place, it has the potential for positive growth. Our aim with this series was to show as wide a representation of people as possible by including members of the LGBTQ+ community, POC characters and storylines that encompass a range of topics including, racism, mental health, body dysmorphia, endometriosis and more.
