THE SEEN AND UNSEEN

While in a hospital room, 10-year-old Tantri realizes that she will not have much time left with her twin brother, Tantra. Tantra's brain is weakening and slowly beginning to lose his senses. He now spends most of his time lying in bed, while Tantri has to accept the reality that she must soon face life alone. This situation opens up something in Tantri's mind: she keeps waking up in the middle of the night from a dream and seeing Tantra. The night becomes their playground. Tantri experiences a magical journey and an emotional relationship through body expressions, finding herself between reality and imagination, loss and hope.
