Synopsis: A student presents an imaginative rendition of the ancient Taoist parable of Chaos. She is admonished by her teacher for her unorthodox delivery. Two parallel narratives run through the film: the quashing of the student’s creativity and the death of Chaos in the parable. This stop-motion film underscores the contemporary relevance of Taoist wisdom by cautioning against dogmatism and the disregard for the natural way of things.
