A metaphorical tale about uncertainty, changeability and dynamics. Coincidences and accidents. Scale and model. Gravity, arrows, ruins – collapse.
The protagonists, chased by fate, run away to the forest. Nature gives them shelter. In order to blend in with the greenery, they change their bodies, faces, hands. In the end, they cannot recognise themselves.
The film is inspired by Javanese culture, including traditional dance, local martial arts – silat and story of Prince Panji and Princess Candra Kirana, popular in Southeast Asia.
