Experiencing Interruptions?

Whirld Web Series - Complete. Episodes 1-5

The Whirld Web Series is a proof of concept pilot that details one wrong turn after another following an incorrectly dialled phone number and a case of mistaken identity. Whirld centres around the life, love, family and work of the central character Tay Ken-Idee. Her experiences, her actions and their resulting consequences… She’s meant to be a behaviour expert, but she can't even manage her own!
