EN - Set against a Victorian backdrop, the story of young entrepreneur Horace who is on the brink of financial ruin. One night, a strange object crashes into his garden. The object starts to sing and Horace responds. A short film about the narrative power music has in film.

NL - Horace, een jonge entrepeneur, staat voor een financiele afgrond. Wanneer op een nacht een vreemd object in zijn tuin belandt, begint datzelfde object te zingen, te communiceren met Horace. Horace 'zingt' terug. Wat dan in gang wordt gestoken is een rollercoaster die de narratieve kracht van muziek in film uit de doeken doet.

FR - Situé dans un décor victorien, un jeune entrepreneur, Horace, se trouve au bord du gouffre de la ruine financière. Une nuit, un étrange objet vient s'écraser dans le jardin de son manoir. L'objet étrange commence à chanter et Horace répond.
