Synopsis

Johnny works as a Tube driver on the London Underground.  He is a savant with perfect recall, but emotionally extremely awkward and solitary.  He uses the Underground as a three-dimensional mnemonic space, travelling in his mind through a simulacrum of its tunnels and platforms to retrieve visual avatars of the information he wants.  Johnny has total recall but feels nothing.  Following a mysterious assault he loses his memory, but is flooded with new emotions.  The action takes place between the physically solid geography of a real London and the psychic geography of Johnny’s mnemonic Underground simulacrum, in a psychogeographic London noir in which stereography will be used to enhance the story’s central theme of emotional transformation.
