The notion that a camera can capture a subject’s soul is explored through this story about a photographer and a film processor.

This non-dialogue film is based on the myth The Soul Cages that tells of a mortal man who risks his life by swimming underwater to free the souls of drowned sailors. Captured by a spirit, the souls are held in clay pots at the bottom of the ocean.
