The video piece is composed of anonymously collected passwords and stories behind them, read by young actors between 12 and 16 years old. Each of them stands in front of a red backdrop and reads from a single sheet of paper personal confessions, childhood memories and clichéd rationalities. These are thoughtful, humorous, and emotional stories about a chosen word that often discloses personal information, which is the antithesis of its purpose.
