A short film adaptation of the play of the same name, originally written by Jean Jacques Rousseau. It follows the life of a sculptor as he battles fears of creative inadequacies, loss of control and solitude.

Romanticism is explored through a juxtaposition of the sublime of nature with an artist and his muse. It is accompanied by an original classical score that follows the emotive journey of the creator as he continues his descent into a god complex.
