A compilation of dances about the manipulation of emotions over time, each of these dances tell of a different story.  They range from religious suppression, to the loss of a father, to anorexia.  The distortion of time is apparent with the double exposed clock on the back that appears in the first dance, with the clock hand skipping around, seemingly randomly.  The angles of the lights bring certain moments to attention; for instance, the downlight in the fog brings out the static of the hair on the balloons for mental illness, and the up light from the shinbusters glare off the plastic wrap on the dancers for eating disorders, and the lack of front light leaves the faces empty for the religious cult upbringing.
