Synopsis

`...a distorted reflection of a single moment from Shakespeare's play "The Tempest", evoking a shifting world in which the boundaries separating reality and imagination, inside and outside, slide apart in unpredictable and sometimes threatening ways. The images are a mix of the natural and the unreal: a harsh,barren island landscape; a man drowning in a violent storm; the slimy entrails of a forbidding underground cavern. Amongst the dream-like detritus of a shipwreck a woman moves alone, singing.'
