A live action experimental drama focused on a young man's psychological struggle that combines elements of sculpture, photography, and video to slow time and visually explore the idea of internal conflict. This struggle erupts into visions that question what lies below the surface and is extended into an underwater environment that can be seen as nurturing, dangerous, inhospitable, safe, or distant.
