Private Project


A Chameleon lives in human society among other animals who joined and adapted the society.

In order for him to change his nature and become like humans, his father prohibited him to eat any insects in his entire life. However, one day he accidentally finds himself in an insect museum where he faces his natural instinct and true nature, with a great deal, which had been taken away from him. He cannot resist and then eats all the insects.

Upon revising his childhood memories and what has happened to him, he makes his own decision.

He then tries to distance himself from humans and the only place he can find suitable to live in its current situation is a standalone tree in the middle of the town's old Smokey square.

However, going back to his origin animal nature within a civilised human world creates him another prison.
