« Stranded on a deserted sandy beach after a long journey that has led him to free himself from his spiritual fetters, a human being meditates peacefully. As he contemplates the reflection of his torments in the vast expanse of water before him, a new curiosity drives him to discover the fantastic world that surrounds him. »
