The guardian of a dark, flooded universe tries to maintain order. It is a fragile balancing act only he can perform. The intrusion of a visitor from the bowels of the earth disrupts his solitary existence, introducing tenderness and torment, to the point of cruelty. In a duet that soon shades into a duel, Dimitris Papaioannou, accompanied by the fascinating dancer Šuka Horn, probes the limits of reality through the filters of science fiction and horror. The result is a gripping chase, a nightmarish manhunt… unless it is us trying to escape our own subconscious?
