A lyrical essay reflecting upon the idea of chance. and transformation. From succulent gardens to beautiful pools, Serafina Steer voyages through mystical encounters where things don't seem quite as they are. This beautifully framed short film seduces and provokes an outer bodyness. A journey into an inner world, canal locks and ponds, like black mirrors into the unknown, alchemical imagery and reflective magical spaces. The voice of Serafina Steer takes us along a path of encounters, following the serpentine shape of an English canal, we discover mythical objects that spark contemporary re-enactments of 15th century illuminated manuscripts. As the wheel of fortune turns the film spins into unexpected images and emotions with the song gliding just above and below the surface.
