A drunken drive through the night. A badger at the wheel. The car radio is the crooning, rhythmic companion that sets the beat of the reeling road, the dance of the headlights of oncoming cars. The beginning becomes the end of a very bizarre journey where speed is relative, compressed by Špela Čadež into a visually sophisticated and stunning flat figure animation.
