MITM, in its original form is a longer piece about an actor, quite literally a struggling one, trying his best to "cry". To act. To be better. He tries to rid himself of all 'distractions'. He even goes to the extreme to get what he wants. He fails. Our inability to change, to be better, and failing despite the best of attempts has always been a fascination. We are often told stories about someone wanting something badly and there is a satisfaction is seeing them get it. This is the other kind.
