“Who knows how to stem the tide except through dreams?”
One night an old seaman dreams the ocean into his bed. His sea green sheets become the polluted waters of his worst nightmare. His own mortality is at risk as his household objects begin to suffocate him.
The film is inspired by the life, and performed by the filmmaker’s father.
