A quiet forest. Mist wanders through the air like a lost soul. The ghosts of dead animals haunt the landscape. Inspired by ancient animist beliefs in which plants, animals and places all possess a distinct spiritual essence, the film points to our growing inability to recognise that other creatures are just as sentient and mindful as we are.
