A young woman mourns the disappearance of several animal species, against the backdrop of a heavily polluted world. When she falls ill due to a bacterial infection, nature appears to send her a message in her hallucinations. But when mankind causes its own demise, what could possibly bring consolation?

Arjan Brentjes began his career as a painter before switching to film in 2009. He has made short films since 2010, working mostly in animation. Technology is a key theme in his work and Arjan often uses visual styles from the past to examine our present or future.
