An old man's vision of a drowning world is clouded. He decides to take radical actions inflicting damage to his surroundings. Instigating a self-destructive chain of events, coming from the dark abyss of his subconsciousness.

The film is created in a painterly fashion as a symbolist-expressionist work which started during lockdown. These interesting times (Covid-19, global warming and polarisation) had a direct influence on the isolationist production. It has also been a personal technical practice, looking for a contemporary aesthetic style adopting computer graphics rendered in real-time, combined with a focus on classic cinematography which came out of a love for 50's & 60's Japanese movies. (Kurosawa & Mizoguchi). As well as a never-ending inspiration taken from the Belgian Symbolist Art movement. (Léon Spilliaert, James Ensor)
