Puzzling, alienated pictures of dreamy excursions in nature are mixed with news reports from scenes of people frantically fleeing false and real terrorist attacks. The film is sequenced as a colourful digital kaleidoscope, evoking an anxiety scenario that depicts the loss of the senses. We live in a fragmented world where personal and public perception collide and appear as a soup of incoherent memories.
