An anatomical mistake is detected in dancer Li's body. The doctors are at a loss. A second heart has grown in her chest. Despite thorough examination the cause remains unclear. The deeper medicine dives into her body looking for explanations, the more Li questions being 'defectious'. Strikingly the film shows Li's emotional strain.
"It is one of the many controversial questions of modern society: where is the place of the individual in the area of conflict between ethics and technology? Comparing images from the microcosm of the body’s insides with those from the universe’s vastness, you find surprising similarities. While both are still quite mysterious. The universe is inside of us." (Lisa Krane)
