After emerging into the world, the character drifts around the city centre and is then traced by the head of operations of the underground organisation who is in charge of establishing order on the surface. The head of operations gives instructions to other reformers to capture 63. 63 is found and taken unconscious to the clinic. When he wakes up, all his memories have been erased. He is then freed and reprogrammed with a new mission but suddenly, the memory of Clara comes back, whose image haunts him more and more.

Miguel and his friends gathered to spend some time together. Everything is going well until they run out of drinks and one of them has to go for some more. In order
to do that, they resort to the game they used to play to decide their arguments:
a playing card over the table, the one who plays must guess if the next card will be a higher or a lower card. Miguel loses so he has to be the one to leave the game.
What started as an ordinary night turns into a mixed up story in which a game of
chance changes the course of their relationship. What would you chose? High or Low?
