EN - The fragile world of a couple is torn apart. What was once dry land is now in two halves, separated by a turbulent sea. Orville remains on a cliff in their home which used to be an integral part of the ruptured lighthouse, in which Imme is now stuck. He has been trying desperately to bring her back, but without success. Meanwhile, Imme continues to send her grief to the other side, using birds. When suddenly her unstable world begins to collapse, Orville must come up with the ultimate solution to rescue her.

Orville blijft op een klif in hun huis dat vroeger een geheel vormde met de vuurtoren, waarin Imme nu vast zit. Hij heeft reeds talloze oplossingen proberen bedenken om haar terug te brengen, zonder resultaat. Ondertussen blijft Imme haar verdriet via vogels opsturen naar de overkant. Wanneer plots haar onstabiele wereld dreigt in te storten moet Orville wel met de ultieme oplossing voor de dag komen om haar te redden.
