This short treats an archetypical game, a power game between the two sexes. It deals with
the preconception of who is victim and who is being abused. How you nourish a moment
to keep the hostile state alive. The platform of this short is simply physical, it's an organic
and the most honest language we speak. Its a physical communication during a sex act in
which we come to observe an allegory to relatable situations.
Two bodies entangled in passion and lust, two bodies giving each other what they need,
until one asks more than the other is willing to give.
