This video is about the paradox between relating to the infinite and being confined to the present moment. Felix is at the end of a love affair. He would like to escape this painful feeling by changing his outlook on life: would it be possible to redefine himself in another situation or another time by changing his identity? Felix feels trapped and he would like to free himself. A monochrome portrait captures only a brief moment in someone’s life.
