An exploration into the notion of lust after a time of darkness, digging into the subconscious of the character, deep into his fantasies. An insect is attracted to the pollen of a flower and the flower indulges it with pleasure. A warm and sticky atmosphere is depicted along with a sensation of relief after a long search in darkness, giving viewers the impression that they have just penetrated a slimy, sweaty flower, until the images burn and disappear.
