Young outcast Sean (Hickson) has isolated himself in a trailer in the Michigan backwoods, setting out on alchemical pursuits with his cat Kaspar as his sole companion. Filled with disdain for authority, he’s escaped a society that has no place for him, but when he turns to black magic to crack nature’s secret, he rouses a malevolent force that threatens to dismantle both his otherworldly goals and his very being. This micro-budget genre-bender echoes the absurdist, visceral tones in Potrykus’s previous films, Buzzard and Ape, which were showcased in a BAMcinématek retrospective in 2015. An Oscilloscope Laboratories release.
