Sita is a central character in the known Indian folktale and myth Ramayana. She is the wife of Rama, the God-King, daughter of the Earth, incarnation of goddess Lakshmi, embodiment of chastity and purity, the Perfect Woman, and a doormat. In this version of the tale she is singing the blues. Sita is born directly from the Earth and found by King Janaka, who recognizes her "celestial beauty" and determines her bride price to be her suitor´s "manliness." Thus she is wed to Rama, with whom she falls in love at first sight. She returns with Rama to Ayodhya, where they live luxuriously until Rama´s scheming stepmother Kaikeyi connives to have him banished for 14 years. Sita eagerly agrees to stay by her husband´s side, and off they go to the forest.

A test pilot takes his plane to the limits of speed, the speed of light, where sound is particulated, light abstracts, and the heat becomes intense. As he approaches the barrier, everything snaps, abstracting the pilot´s reality into environmental shifts and hallucinations.

A soft and gentle, very poetic film. The pictures get their own soul, each gets a character. We hear them talk, whisper, shout. They seek and long for other pictures. Seeking just like people seek other people with announcements in newspapers. The pictures get into a row and finally find to each other for creating an emotional film sequence. By the usage of different voices and music a very lyrical sound is created. The target is to seduce the viewer into a longing and passionate world of pictures. Not just a poetic film but also a filmed poem.
