The film plays around with the trope that classically associates women with an irrational and uncontrolled outflow of sounds—the opposite of "rational", self-controlled, moderate in speaking Man. Employing unpleasant sounds, high pitched shrieks and guttural groans, the film explores stages in between femininity and animality. A woman is losing her voice, but this loss provokes a physical mutation. The camera point of view goes down in the woods, suggesting the perspective of a critter that is moving four-footed. The disappearing voice will eventually come back as animals’ cries.
