This experimental film is a visual mood poem using the barest narrative form to convey the feeling and time of crisis for a man in middle age. His marriage has collapsed, he is without a job, and his father has died. There is no reality; only an indistinguishable mixture of images and moments drawn from some space in time that could be his past, his present, or his future. A document of one man's struggle to understand the meaning of his existence as he comes to the realization of his own mortality.

The Vermont International Film Festival is a non-profit organization whose mission is to enrich the community and bring the world to Vermont through film.
Launched in 2014 by a group of filmmakers, archivists and concerned members of the public who wished to ensure the survival of artists’ films in Vermont, VAMP officially became a program of VTIFF in May 2015. The VAMP committee has broadened the initial concept to include all types of films and videos made by VT filmmakers or shot in Vermont.
