Abstract

Digital stories are an emerging phenomenon to present the realities and the values of life. Truth seems abandoned when a normal life is spent and it could lead tothe destruction of values. The present study is conducted to understand the elements of truth and values in the digital story of Michael Joyce’s Twelve Blue (1996). The study is qualitative and is conducted based on the textual analysis of the story. Postmodernism theory by Lyotard (1979) is adopted under which the digital story is analyzed. The findings of the study show that the life of a female is presented beyond the truth in the stories where the truths and the values are not presented. Humans are presented as free from all forces and powers, and then they have to come under the unseen powers and forces. Knowledge and cultural values can be challenged under Postmodernism and the truth comes to know when a person is exercising terror and is unable to rewind the real truths of life.
