EN - A motorcyclist is drawing a red line in the middle of the desert. This thin red line must not be interrupted nor be over-crossed. The motorcyclist is disturbed by a stranger, an ex-motorcyclist, who does not respect the “rules” of the red line. The stranger harasses the motorcyclist by shamelessly stepping across the line repeatedly. The motorcyclist feels compelled to kill the stranger. However, the stranger turns out to be an invincible bogeyman who keeps rising from the dead to torment the motorcyclist. Eventually the stranger devises a ruse to confine the motorcyclist within his obsession forever.

NL - Surrealistische korte film waarin een motorrijder op de uitgedroogde aarde van een hete woestijn met rode verf een lijn trekt. Hij wordt echter verstoord door een vreemdeling, een ex-motorrijder, die treiterend de grenslijn overschrijdt. De motorrijder voelt zich genoodzaakt wraak te nemen, maar de vreemdeling blijft hardnekkig toeslaan.
