Short dance film about a man who after a free fall lands in a typically Dutch field. With the passing of the seasons, he organically joins his surroundings.
After a free fall, a Japanese man lands in a typically Dutch field. It is cold and barren - wintry. While the seasons elapse, the man moves in a jumble of limbs. Organically, he joins his surroundings, in a game of breaking away and embracing. Silent dance film about the natural life cycle is part of Point Taken: four short dance films by choreographers and filmmakers working in the Netherlands.
