About this submission
This film observes three characters, each one trapped in a different version of vanity that prevents them from connecting with anyone else. The orator puts his ambition of presenting his speech above connection, his assistant prioritizes supporting him before her own self, and the explorer is a Ioner who refuses to be a part of anything. I considered the forest a singular mental territory, with each character representing a different aspect of my psyche. The three intersect once, which leads to a variation in each of their lives, but at the end they all return to their former flaws.
