A floating sensation pervades this experimental animated work. The protagonist, a young man, wanders through a mysterious world in which it is impossible to discern dreams from reality, and repeatedly awakes in the same room. A succession of characters appears, discussing themes such as art, philosophy, and evolution in a torrent of words. Made by digitally painting live-action video footage, the film gives rise to a strange worldview in which fact and fiction are intertwined.
