Climate catastrophe. Species extinction. Colonial injustice. In a world based on exploitation and destruction, in which we are all part of this devastation, what is the way to live? How to deal with the realisation that we are in the midst of profound changes - and that the worst is yet to come? How can we look, witness, be active without losing ourselves?
We accompany two characters moving between pain, lethargy and hope. In their search for the future (yesterday it was still there, wasn't it?), all they encounter is an elephant.
The elephant is very big.
„ You cannot destroy what is part of you unless you have forgotten who you are. We have forgotten. But the forgetting is not the hard part – it is the remembering that hurts.” – Sage Freda
