The past is recaptured in this memory film of the sixties. A house in Hollywood off the Sunset Strip serves as a metaphor for a reconstruction of time based on cycles. The film-maker lives in a cell-like room just off the living room. An archetype emerges in the form of a mountain. The acid experience congeals the reptilian self, and the film-maker repairs to the beach in Venice to recover.
