Sexual hallucinations of an abandoned man. The hell of jealousy mingles with the bonfire of vanities, pink longing fades into purple lust.

A young female taxidermy apprentice is working to give new life to deceased birds. She is fascinated with one species in particular – crows. In ancient myths and legends, the crow represents a mediator between life and death. For her, death is not a strange thing, but something tangible, an inseparable element in the cycle of existence. In her world, a black cat is playing curiously with an unfinished crow and a piece of meat embodies both the demise of an animal and a new beginning, nurturing a newborn bird fluttering in its nest. Portrayed in a language of symbols, the film lingers somewhere between documentary, experimental, and poetry.
