    • Synopsis
    • The minimal plot reveals a claustrophobic situation in a family which lives in the suburbs, in a strange villa that appears, through a complex game of mirrors that hardly resembles a real house. The main character, who rear appers on screen, is the son, a man in his thirties. Suffering from asthma and eczema since childhood, he uses his condition to manipulate his parents and his sister. This existence of the terrorised family turns into an endless ritual of attempting to satisfy his whims, and always on the alert for yet another one of his “heath crises”.This is a story of a man, who profiteers the illness created his own world, where all is revolved round him.
      Feature debut by the Ukrainian visual artist Ihor Podolchak. One musical part is co-directed by the well-known music video director Dean Karr. The almost magical visual part bears reminiscences of 17th century still lifes. The music and the sound added to it absorb the viewers and give them the feeling of being a part of this visual experience.
