7:28 will be available Spring 2021 online.
It’s 7:28. Work is done and the evening is ahead of you. What are you going to do? Watch some TV? Look at some photos? Scroll down the socials? Look at the stars? You could do anything. Take a seat. Grab your laptop. Are you comfortable? Are you relaxed?
In two minutes’ time, at 7:30, you might have been about to sit down in a theatre ready to watch a play, but things have changed. It’s 7:28, or any time other than 7:30, so what happens next?
7:28 is an online treasure hunt across the internet — solve the riddle, unlock the next video, and jump into a new world. 7:28 is about comfort, contentment and feeling connected. This is your journey through these stories. It is about you in those moments on your own, and about you in those moments spent together.
