A young boy experiences a series of abstract transformations after drinking a mysterious green liquid. A diverse cast of characters twist and stretch their way out of one another forming a monumental pile. The boy then downs the liquid a second time which violently transforms him again, creating a torrent even more twisted than the first, but this time in reverse order.
