Synopsis


Sailors kill time under a blistering sun, awaiting a sign of their prey. A young mind turns inwards as it traces the wood grain. After bloodshed, a strong arm offers a moment of shelter. A boy gets his first tattoo. Spermaceti evokes the transitional space-time of a young man on the threshold of an initiation. As we fluctuate between the underwater and the above, boundaries become slippery.
