An ironic journey through the life recaps of a man, devoured by his own melancholy and apathy, designing everything in the foreseeable and unimaginable future, while inaction is turning his life into disappointment, emotional crash and premature ending. The film is based on the poem Above Things by Stefan Ikoga and it is part of the animation poetry collection Mark and Verse.
