This series is about the ambiguity between acquaintances and strangers. People have universal features and their own personal characteristic at the same time. Distinctive features make people unique, while simultaneously acting as a means by which people to classify one another. On the other hand, the general behavior and similar appearance of the characters will help viewers to feel a sense of belonging and understanding with the subway patrons. People depicted in the subway showing general behavior allows for the audience to reflect who they are within their own background.
