A short film meditation on a young woman’s thought process as she contemplates suicide. Inspired by Sophocles’ Greek tragedy Antigone, it imagines a missing scene that we only hear about after the events have already occurred in the original.
Having been walled up alive in an underground tomb, Antigone asks herself was it her traumatic past or fate that lead her to this lonely death? In the end, when there’s no way out, she wonders is suicide merely a mad and desperate act or is it the only way she can become the master of her own destiny?
