Spirál

Bence and Janka live on the shore of a secluded lake. Their ailing relationship and the mysterious perishing of the fish disrupt this heavenly ambiance. When Janka accidentally drow ns, Bence is unwilling to let go of her, lowering her body into the lake. In time, he finds comfort and love in Nora, who gradually develops an uncanny resemblance to Janka. A tale of four seasons that unfolds as a haunting metaphor on the burden of grief and loss.
