The film is inspired by ASMR videos, which present themselves with the purpose to relax the viewer. Even though this film will present itself as having the purpose to relax the viewer, it will, in fact, stimulate the mind with discomfort that results from hearing unpleasant sounds. The concept is to demonstrate innate mental capacities to recall sound and imagery from memory, and realize how this mental imagination can still influence an emotional state. The tension lies between the discord of the calming essence of the roleplay and the negatively rousing content presented to the viewer.
