Adam, a 45-year-old painter, wrestles with the ghosts of his past, consumed by the weight of traumatic memories that drive him to the brink of suicide. Meanwhile, in a parallel dimension, ksms, a cosmic creature, grapples with the daunting ordeal of its own birth. Despite existing in separate realms, their shared anguish forms a cosmic connection, drawing them together in the liminal space between life and death. In this intersection of worlds, they discover a glimmer of hope and renewal in each other's presence. Through Adam's artistic expression, he immortalizes ksms in his latest painting, a poignant symbol of rebirth and the enduring cycle of life's complexities.

For to be born is to declare death. To be reborn, life.
