This film was made in the Amazon Jungle, Peru, during PlayLab Films’ Director’s Lab with Apichatpong Weerasethakul.

In the liminal space between the jungle and the wide river that runs through it, steeped in myths of anacondas, piranhas and jaguars, a man has lived alone in a secluded hut for twenty years. A hunter’s voice from the past shares a dream with his wife in which wild animals seek revenge on him, placing into question how everyday life will be lived in their future. While the couple’s human drama unfolds, nature remains unfazed, time and the river moving forward – or is it backwards?
