An exotic dancer finds a way to escape reality.
Short Film exploring the existential claim: "Existence Precedes Essence".
This idea established by Sartre, says that existence is a result of chance or accident.
We come into the world as a blank sheet, as an unfinished product, then through our actions in the course of our lives, we define ourselves.
Out contemplation, introspection, and actions are possible only due to our existence; Existence thus being the first principle from which man defines himself and creates his own essence.
