A flow of consciousness that impetuously moves in search of the primordial and chaotic source of our existence. The topics of war, of the desire for immortality, of self-awareness, of the imminent apocalypse, shatter in an irregular and multifaceted narration. The movie breaks apart and recomposes collective memories and shreds of life of various characters who, for a few short moments, are snatched from the constant and chaotic movement of events.

“The project came about through research on chaos and the dynamics that traverse contemporary society, based on the manipulation of the collective imagination for complete control over mankind and nature. But Jung reminds us that awareness is a revolutionary act, that unhinges our identity and reality itself. Frenetic editing alters fragments of war in the Middle East and other images shot in southern Europe, where the lands of Order overlook the lands of Chaos. This parallel narration overlaps the seasons of man, childhood and old age, whereas the tension toward the infinite takes form in the immortal cells of Henrietta Lacks.”
