Employing a series of surreal dream sequences, Honetschläger poses existential questions, pushing boundaries to their limits in the process: Ultimately, the substance that allows the world to vanish from the universe is itself purged. The journey takes us from the great inventor Sekai, by way of his son Aun, to Euclides. At the heart of the journey are the search for a future worth living in and a sea snail, which may contain the desired solution. A philosophical, Shinto-inspired cinematic portrait.
