Experiencing Interruptions?


The story begins during the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, in the blue palace; a cheap but peculiar motel along the highway of Accra and the upper west region of Ghana. A traveling bus must pass the night here, as they experience some mechanical problems.
However, they wake up to the news that the government just imposed a two-week lockdown, and no movement is allowed in the country. There's no way to leave the motel, there's no way to get the parts required to fix their bus, the motel has little or zero network coverage, resources are limited, the next town is at least an 8-hour walk and the road is notorious for bandits.
