In this chapter of a sprawling episodic para-documentary film work, a sect has locked themselves inside a compound to shelter from an ambiguous crisis happening outside. When a stranger arrives seeking refuge, the group's prophecies slowly begin to unfold. Filmed over the course of a week locked inside a Dutch 19th century fort and underground Cold War bunker, the character and narrative development progressed freely in realtime through a series of performance exercises, with the resulting documentation slipping between fact, fiction, and fantasy.
