Counterpart explores an individual’s perception of “self.” What is it to know one’s self? Is our self identity a combination of ideals and alternate identities, or is the self merely a mirage? At times the relationship between the ideal self you strive to be and the reality of who you are becomes an internal struggle that overtakes all else.
