Theatre engineer Elias builds a fully functional steampunk submarine together with his friends. While Nico rescues people from the waves of the Mediterranean, the 70-year-old artist Jim advises: ”Don‘t do it. Don’t fix cars, but rather do something in life that you really want to”. Elias asks himself: Is there a decision to be made between self-realization and selfless-action? Upon what does responsibility towards individuals or larger society depend?
ABOUT WATER AND DREAMS is a philosophical journey that questions the meaningfulness of our actions and dares to dream publicly in our dreamless society.
