Humanlikely is inspired by a real fish canning factory, and reconstructed similar fictional scenes in visuals. The setting of the factory and the division of labor scenes on screen suggest an implicit social structure. Characters keep performing repetitive mechanical movements in four scenes, they all repeat actions about catching fish, killing fish, filling cans. When audiences watch and are aware that this is a space of continuous cycles, they will work through the hints provided by the scenes and the characters to comprehend the process of cyclical metaphor in the work.
