As authoritarian regimes enjoy a frightening renaissance, the youthful will to resist is on the rise. This experimental animated film looks into the past and future, bringing trauma to light and setting unusually mutated bodies in motion. It is a fierce appeal not to surrender to the forces of repression, but to free oneself from victimhood with all one’s might.
