A woman wakes up one morning with a physical anomaly : her hands become hypersensitive, to a point where she can ‘read’ and feel the world by touching objects. Science and medecine help her to adapt to her new senses. Her hands starts to grow, she becomes the Women With Huge Hands. This CD-ROM comes with an illustrated book of poetry of which it constitutes the last chapter.
