Stranded on the fringes of humanity, how much of it can you still find in yourself?

World War I might be nearing its end, but for the patients suffering from shell shock in an isolated convalescent home, the war is always present. Ulrich, a doctor for the German army, is sent to inspect the home, but the strange world he encounters when he arrives seems more fiction than his cold, rational mind can comprehend. When a blood-curdling cry from a wild boy draws Ulrich into the forest, he knows he must save the child. Little does he know, that the unlikely and endearing connection the two forge, will lead him to discovering his one true self. Director Davis Simanis crafts a visual masterpiece, filled with hauntingly beautiful imagery and bizarre logic. It's a dark yet fascinating universe, unfolding like a Kafkaesque dream that will keep you guessing long after the screen fades to black.
