Alive through inner and confined movements, the film stays fluid between time and space where oxygen may not be enough. Choreographer Milka Sakic Mennell, Director and Photographer Erik Bergstrand and composer Martin Öhman take us on a collective journey through various forms of synopsis. Everything from neutralism, competition, mutualism, predation, parasitism, commensalism. Here we experience an idyll but are still left with a feeling of discomfort.
