Short fantasy/science-fiction film about parallel worlds. During a day on the beach a man is fantasising that he is an astronaut on Mars. Or: an astronaut on Mars is transferring himself in `virtual reality' to a day on the beach.

Episode from the Kort! series. In this short science-fiction film, two men are far away from home. Ray and Brad alleviate their homesickness by watching home movies that were shot from their perspective. By means of virtual reality goggles, Ray sees his wife and children play on the beach. Ver weg opposes the ordinary human imagination to the make-believe, created with technological fireworks, of virtual reality.
