Film Synopsis

Two distinct personalities are represented by pairs of hands that interact with the ritual objects on the table before them. The channel on the left is a negating personality, who is skeptical to the point of destructiveness, and is bent on sabotaging the other with cruel words and by sticking needles into a doll. The channel on the right is a creative personality, who struggles to remain productive despite the influence of the Other.
