This experimental movie is a kind of an association chain, based on the relationship between an urban utopia of a city and nature. It takes a critical look at the idea of the romantic landscape painting by Caspar David Friedrich and colonialist landscape in the children’s book Babar the King by Jean de Brunoff. In order to explore landscape with senses other than sight, the film is played by actors from a theatre for the visually impaired people, Helsinki.
