Synopsis

A detailed observation with underlying critical currents; an ironic visual commentary built on the metaphysical; an intoxicating reflection on the pilgrimage towards spiritual uplifting, holy water and sacred statues, where the concept of eternity is for sale at stands. Precisely framed shots with aptly composed sound details form a layered poem about Lourdes, whilst the images of the powerful roaring sea characterise the unbridled passage of time.
