Lain :: Layers

Present time...

The series is primarily divided into four tapes or DVD's. (Yes, VCD has five discs, but that is beside the point.) Here, we will follow the same design.

Navi

We're All Connected
There is the world around us, a world of people, tactile sensation, and culture. There is the wired world, inside the computer, of images, personalities, virtual experiences, and a culture all its own. The day after a classmate commits suicide, Lain, a thirteen year-old girl, discovers how closely the two worlds are linked when she receives an e-mail from the dead girl: "I just abandoned my body. I still live here..." Has the line between the real world and the wired world begun to blur?

The KNIGHTS are trying to make Lain do something... When Lain metaphorises her physical self into the wired to search for an answer of incidents that kids commit suicide. She finds that the KNIGHTS are behind this incident. One day, a group of men in black suits make contact with Lain. "Are those people who you live with really yours parents?"
