The dissolution of a relationship unravels through visual and aural equivalences. The film splits and recomposes actions of the lovers in a streaming montage of disruptive permutations: 8mm is printed as 16mm, moving images freeze, frames recur and dissolve until the film bursts into flames, consuming its own substance.
