Shot in 35mm film in a Barbican flat in London, an explorer tells his anthropologist friend about an experience with a previously uncontacted group in the jungle and a ritual he underwent which he claims granted him immortality. When his friend fails to believe him, the explorer demonstrates his inability to die, and the scene seamlessly loops back to its beginning. Like the endlessly repeating film, the explorer is frozen in a loop outside real time due to its immortal status.
