It is raining over the sea, the rain is coming from the side and gradually grower denser. The raindrops make the picture unclear. Behind the music, we constantly hear the sound of the downpour. Sometimes it relents, only to gain in strength again. The light eats a bright spot into the clouds. All of a sudden, the image cuts itself free from reality; waves are created by the picture’s disintegration into surfaces of changing hues that clear up into a blue colour that grows increasingly saturated. The rain on the soundtrack has stopped altogether.

The entire film is based on one motionless shot of the sea, behind which rises a hill and in the middle floats a boat. The tension rises with the changing autonomy of the image.
