"Habit rules the unreflecting herd." Wordsworth. A rich man, an ailing wife, a gold-digger who poses as a caretaker to get close to the husband, and a gay grandson who can see through her surfaces but can’t convince his homophobic grandfather of her abuses. This was originally a submission to the MachinimUWA VI "Reflections" Challenge. I think, rather, that it is about "surfaces": the secrets we hide behind the labels we assume for ourselves and project on others.
