Main Info

Short documentary, Belgium
24’, HD digital, 16:9 anamorphic, stereo, colour


At night, a man stands in the middle of the road. He paints the white markings black. His mind gradually slips back into a faraway realm created by his illness. Some time later, at the mental institution, as he tries to retain a fragile grip on reality, the delusional account of his past begins to unravel. Losing his sense of reality disturbed his life, but at the same time creates an opening for a possible recovery and new hope.
