The non-narrative form of the film takes the audience through the characters’ states of being awake, sleeping, dreaming, and transcending to the cosmic path, where conditioned existence ends.








The film celebrates


the feminine with its all-female cast. It challenges fairytale-like narratives of being rescued. The protagonists take the initiative in their world and break their curse.By not conforming to such histories, it offers a fresh perspective on the portrayal of the feminine.
