The short film is based on the electroacoustic track by composer Viktoria Grahv “Mahingan lihtsalt rohkem”. While the music grew out of the concept of breathing as a ceaseless strength to break loose from chains, the animation reworks this theme,visualising the perceived inner movement of an anxiety attack and embodying the process of dealing with it.The whole project became for the composer and the animator an act of healing both self-directed as shared, approaching the intertwined, choking knot of breath and fear, issues even more diffused in the current worldwide situation.
