When superhuman abilities entered the world in 2008, the world struggled to come to terms with its new reality. Those (un)lucky few who've developed abilities are now forced to decide what to do with them: ignore them and try to lead a normal life, use them to further their own goals, or use them to defend those who cannot defend themselves – even if much of the world doesn't want their help. Many just wish things could go back to normal, but while much remains uncertain, it is clear to all involved that 'normal' will never be normal again.

It warps the their reality to the point where that tunnel becomes their whole world. It manipulates emotions. Changes goals. Skews the clear path they were walking when the world was not confined to a tunnel... and a truly happy ending no longer seems possible. They become lost.
But why? Why do people get lost? How do people allow these obstacles to stop them from appreciating and enjoying the beauty of life? What is it that causes some to be forever lost in a world of torment and confusion while others seems to surpass and exceed and continue growing and learning and... living?
