Björk is an archetypal nomad, shepherding giant yaks through the mountains. She uses hydromancy to decide whether to take them down a river or not. A second self, the Painbody Backpack, sprouts from her like a growth, then engages her in an action play which illustrates their relationship. The force that compelled Björk to go down river begins to manifest itself in Björk's head and in the physical world. This character, the River God, is a transcendental attractor who pulls her into the future. Shot in stereoscopic 3D, the video took nine months to complete.
