Nicole asks the viewer - "Have you ever felt immense satisfaction while sitting down to meals with family? Do you ever feel like you don't quite fit? Have you ever noticed a particular time of day when the sunlight turns a room in your house? Would you be able to explain that light? Do you have times when the 'Everyday-ness' is disheartening? Are there other times when it fills you up? Do you ever feel unappreciated? Do you ever feel whole? Have you ever felt full of sunshine? Do you ever have an 'every-day' satisfaction whilst sitting down to meal with family? Have you ever eaten cornflakes and coke?"
