The film starts in stillness and with a secret, a message, danced and gestured by a messenger.
Subsequently and with rising sound, we go on a journey through the close-up of an eye: A canon of nature shots enfolds, moving macro pictures, images of people in different body positions, up to stop trick shots of plant forms.
The sections are held together by an assortment of music, ranging from sound recordings to electronic music.
Are these images that have faced the film travellers, or are they personifying the travellers themselves, in their passage?
