Taking its name from a line in 'The Golden Bough' by James Frazer 1922, the film weaves threads of migration, alchemy and folklore through elementary particles, in documentary, action and performance. An investigation into sites where Alchemists lived, worked or died looking for contemporary resonances within those localities. A psychogeographic process of encountering images, sounds and people celebrating serendipitous encounters. The soundtrack attempts to bleed a digital presence into these liquid landscapes touching nature and disappearing.
