"the" is the companion to "and". Using the same cast but focusing on a different character the video focuses of the flip side of the themes from "and".

In this case the character is not looking for something more but rather is trying to understand things as the are. She is trying to focus and define. This leads to a structure where the main character curiously looking at events around her, often feeling touched by their humanity, always feels apart from what she is observing.

In the end, the role of the observer is too confining and she attempts to incorporate herself in the act of observing.
