Synopsis

God, Abraham, Isaac, a lost shepherdess and a herd of antelopes (in the rile of the Ram) appear in this ancient tale which has been transposed to a new digital world; a world in which no one is innocent and where the things which we search for – and eventually find – are destined to be lost again.
