In this short film, a journey within a landscape is experienced through the senses of a young boy. His eyes and ears become portals, that sights and sound flow through. In his absorbing journey, from the sea’s edge-inland, he witnesses orderly communities of limpets and seed mussels that have found a place to live and dwell, and the coexistence of rocks and mosses seem naturally ordained.
