A hiker meets a man whose upper body is covered with illustrations so vivid and beautiful that they literally come to life. One by one, the images quiver with fantastic tales guaranteed to stir your imagination. The illustrations tell tales of a future where space travel is commonplace and technology has a tendency to turn sinister. Full of realistic details and dialogue, the stories make what was unthinkable believable, blurring the fine line between reality and fantasy. When the hiker's own face appears on the illustrated man's body, the image is so terrifying he can't bear to stay and hear its tale.
