An experimental art film that explores the nature of performance through three interconnected scenes: an interview, a live oboe concert, and a futuristic cleansing ritual.
In a bleak, minimalistic future, IKARIA, a scientist, interviews her closest friend, the artist IO, for a chance to Ascend to A New Earth with an elitist society of Inventors, but nothing is quite as it seems as IKARIA reminisces about an oboe performance they attended together, trying to warn IO that a secret from their past could threaten their idealistic future.
