Synopsis

The film uses a sequence of vibrating visions experienced during meditation, in order to analyse the interactions of physical existence. The vanity of flesh born through a lifetime, unreasonable mortality of substance, sensual pleasures, superficial aesthetics, a quest for false harmonies - which one is the answer? Daily routine and fiction blend into a cycle of realist and surrealist movements, agitated and repetitive as a danse macabre.
