This film is an audiovisual journey in the form of a three-part interaction between four narrators, emergent sound events and rhythmicized synaesthetic video sequences. A symbiosis of visual processes and natural and artificial sounds. Images, music, speech and sounds are commensurate compositional elements that lead the viewer through various microscopic and macroscopic structures of nature in a literal and transcendent sense, making them sensuous to the eye and ear.

376 AD — a refugee crisis in the Roman Empire. The destiny of a Germanic family and its tribe reveals a historical perception on today’s migrational movements. Inspired by actual events. The summer of 376 AD. The Gothic female warrior Elja is forced to give in to the marauding Huns and to seek shelter for herself and her clan in the Roman empire. Once at the border they must wait for orders and provisions from the Roman authorities. Elja tries to understand the Roman plans in spite of the language barrier. Reluctantly Elja must hand over her sword as the Roman general Cossus tells her that, being a woman, she will never be accepted as a warrior in Rome. She feels helplessly at the mercy of her alleged allies and their laws. Why is she being treated like a prisoner of war? Why can’t she travel onwards with her clan? What will happen when the Huns reach their camp? The Gothic faith — and in turn Elja’s entire identity — is put to the test. When Cossus surprisingly calls upon the Gothic clan leaders, tempers reach their boiling point and the situation escalates.

Two estranged siblings are reunited at the funeral for their parents, a couple of crazy doctors-without-borders who rarely stuck around to do any parenting. Though supposedly all grown up, Marcus and Michelle are as lost and self-centered as kids. They struggle with their lack of grief over the deaths, and they struggle with each other. Tensions rise while Michelle stays with Marcus and his wife. They wait for days as the family lawyer sorts out the convoluted estate of the globe-trotting doctors, who may not be the angels they were thought to be. Marcus tries to keep a sputtering music career alive as he spirals into a black hole of mysterious health ailments, and Michelle begins a secret affair with Marcus’ father-in-law that will be disastrous if discovered. The siblings can’t help but turn their current lives and relationships into chaos as they’re forced to reckon with their shared past. The movie is about pain, laughter, loss, sex, ego...it’s about the search for real family and the strong pull of roots. Turns out it’s hard to be the children of saints.
