PROJECT DESCRIPTION

As Floyd sits trying to process the disappearance of his cult obsessed wife, a moth burrows his way into his ear, setting off a series of visions and the adventure of his life. Pushed over the edge and past his breaking point, he’s compelled to run headlong into the unknown.

On foot and out in the open, he can see them now– their numbers are growing. He runs day and night. Finally, his feet give out and he collapses. Thinking for sure they will devour him, they pass overhead, showing no interest in him. Drained of the fear that propelled him forward, he walks on until his last ounce of energy is spent.

A final moth lands on his hand. He holds it up to eye level and stares it down. He’s done running. He gives in, and in that release, he’s granted access to what he wanted all along.
