Through the visual manipulation of scenes from the beach, the film explores the chromatic, refractive, and reflective characteristics of glass. The observation of people on the seaside in high-contrast, blue-toned images transitions into a threatening nighttime storm. During the daytime, we again see people from up-close, but through the Cubist disintegration of their shadows.

The body in the salty seaside air, surrounded by the returning waves, remains an autonomous whole, but the sky can merge with the sea and blend into its blue colour.
