This project focuses on how the live of my main character that represent particular condition of an individual in the society. It also focuses on the surival of the character as the individual in changing her future. The theme that is used in this project is the survival of the individual. I would also explore how fear distorted human in making a crucial decision in order to survive the adverse and unusual circumstance.
