(GBR 2016, HD, 11’45’’, English)
Seen from several perspectives, the mysterious moment when chance meetings and future tragedies intersect – anywhere in the world. Even if the future fate of the protagonists seems predictable, their actions cannot be influenced. A film based loosely on Ted Hughes‘ text The Pan, one of only two poems that Hughes wrote for his wife Sylvia Plath, who committed suicide in 1963.
