In a dreamlike narrative, a woman takes a bath and reflects upon her past experiences; submerged in the water she enters a space out of time. It is an existentialist film questioning the boundaries the between body and the outside world, between water and skin. Using traditional frame by frame animation, Cecilia combines paint on glass, gouache and digital animation to create a tactile and intimate film.
