Miles Away From You is about Miles mourning his transgender girlfriend who fell into a coma after a suicide attempt. He tries to get back on his feet when his moms send him in Iceland where he meets Óskar. Miles is a sarcastic character who's learning how to grieve. The story is told through a series of instant messages.
