In a futuristic, fascist society, a car made of organic material hits a mechanical deer dislodging its spirit from its body. The driver of the car engages with the spirit deer through a series of dialogues, dances, and musical interludes, a kind of Pas de Deux between the organic and the mechanical, between the spirit and the flesh, between nature and culture, between the past and the future.
