Terror Fervor follows seven different characters through a psychedelic dystopia. This wasteland echos the past and future of loss and abandon. Each character holds their vices tightly to them as they sway and morph from space to space. A warning tale of the dangers of malaise and malicious behaviors. Overconsumption, brainwashing, murder! But also beautiful colors and a sweet, sweet soundtrack.
