This is a lullaby for someone. The improvised performance of the musical instrument Kalimba, played in rituals in Africa, echoes through the sea, where victims steadily died just because they followed the instruction “Stay still”. The film tries to connect and consulate the earnest desire of both the deceased and the bereaved through the sound and physical expression.
