Searching shelter and community, the All Day Hero is equipped with not much more than his space suit, which used to protect his safety in the expanses of the universe. Stranded on planet earth, an unfamiliar and obscure planet, he tries to find a common ground. On his search through unknown territory, he encounters newness and surprise, yet he does not feel unity through interaction. Being perceived a stranger, he finds it hard to express his desire to connect and share his wide-ranging experience. The world around him recognizes the individual as unknown and strange instead of building a trusting atmosphere. The space suit guarantees physical security, but does it harm convergence with the other kind? Besides his good intentions to enhance the new environment, he walks alone in search for a new home. An individual, being forced yet open to start a new journey. An individual, being equipped with experience and expertise from a different world. An individual, being lonely and alone besides his warm intentions. All Day Hero characterizes the search for community and harmony in an alien and new environment that is felt by countless.
