Plot synopsis
Short film based on motives of Daniil Kharms’ works, combining elements of cinema, drawn animations and computer graphics. The hero is gripped by carnal desires, then discouraged by improbable incidents. He drops from reality into non-reality, from a movie world into a drawn world, from one dream to another. The pursuit of meaning and the vulgar attempt to touch the sacral book culminate in the hero’s disappearance. He loses his essence, that is, all his desires, and turns to a sphere.
