The film is a call against dominant powers and a response to ongoing crises under white patriarchy, relaying the feelings and gestures of chronic unease, protest and dissent. The director counterattacks with rap, digital fluidities, and numerous images including female bleeding, over-groomed toupees, environmental catastrophes, weeping whirlpools, scorched orangutans, banknotes made from animal-fat, the moon advancing towards Earth, pizzas, and drones.
