An essay about the difference in which our 2 hemispheres experience the world. These 2 worlds are depicted and interwoven by means of fictional scenes, interviews, documentary images and a soundscape. A portrait of the paradox that seems to dwell in us, which questions the essence of The Enlightenment: that we can predict or replace experiences with our thinking ability.

A family in a semi-utopian town, in an undefined country, is torn by war, socio-political instability and superstition. They take refuge in imaginary worlds: they dance to fight ghosts, turn funerals into celebrations and plan a tunnel through the earth, all to counter the trauma of disappearances, possession and death.
