This experimental short film takes the audience on a metaphorical journey into movement: "Allow me to introduce myself. I am movement. And this is my film. With me is life. But what is without me? What is my essence? I try to comprehend what I am. Dancing. I show and observe myself at various locations. I wake up in water, explore boundaries in the chaos of the city. I recognize my inevitability, and yet I lose myself on the path to my freedom. Music accompanies my excursion into the world, through five chapters in different scenarios." In this liaison of film and dance, the camera itself becomes the protagonist's expression – and it dances.
