    An obsessive, self-styled "Archivist" roams the city collecting strange objects and documents. Each of the documents is an artifact from a distinct but parallel world; a map from a corporation whose only purpose is to track the whereabouts of its employees, a video made by a scientist who forgot that he was the subject of his own experiment, an artificial eye that allows people to see a common vision... When these other worlds begin to undermine the stability of her own, she is forced to leave the safety of her archive and trace the disturbance to its source. -- (C) Official Site
