Weimar-born director Leander Brandstädt shares his visual vision of freedom born from the reinvigorated spirit of self-determination.

In a tropical environment and inside haunting interiors, a couple moves across nature in a poetical film defining the fear of freedom. With a metaleptic approach, the film visually explores and questions human consciousness through the visual contrast between light and darkness, movement and paralysis, dream and reality. Inspired by Erich Fromm's publications, the film creates poetic imagery around those thoughts.
